Vibrating Shoes Warn Blind People to Obstacles in Their Path
There are already smartphones and smart watches, so why not smart shoes? At least one company thought about that and how they could help the blind. Emanuel Zuendel is mostly blind and has used a cane to detect obstructions in his path. Now he has InnoMake shoes, which detect objects up to 10 feet in front of him. When the shoes detect an obstacle, they send a signal to the user by vibrating or by making a sound on the user’s smartphone. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
