---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype enhancing the traditional red and white stick used by individuals with visual impairments. The Eye Stick is designed as a practical solution for commuters with visual impairments. Fitted with a sensor lens toward the bottom part of the stick, the Eye Stick picks up location bearings such as nearing a staircase or traffic lights. The Eye Stick then sends feedback to the user via vibrations, communicating a scenario of the environment so that the user can be aware of his or her surroundings and move accordingly.
