Meet Eyesynth: an audiovisual system for the blind consisting of a pair of glasses that record the surrounding environment in 3D. The collected data is translated into understandable audio for the blind. The system also has a micro computer that receives data from the glasses and converts it into a series of abstract sounds. The sounds are transmitted through head bones, so the wearers will have their ears open.
The glasses work in tracking and panoramic modes, capturing the front view or whole scenes. The language for this system is expected to be easy to learn. More information is available on Kickstarter.
