“Visionplus” Sightstick for the Blind

This is no mere cane, all ye adventurers, this is a stick to make the blind see! Utilizing GPS technology, the “Visionplus” interacts with the user through audio and tactile means through the stick. Working with RFID Tag technology, the stick bookmarks specific locations and provides the user critical information. Visionplus is one-hand controlled, improved over its predecessors in mobility, usability, and safety. Sight not guaranteed!

This is VERY similar to the Geo-tagging stick ; the big difference is that this one’s for the sightless. The Visionplus has walking mode and vehicle mode, sound and vibration notifications, adjustable grips and sticks. The Visionplus also uses brail for the hearing impaired!
