DailyDirt: Helping The Blind With Technology

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We’ve seen some early-stage advances for ways that might help restore sight to people with low vision (or no vision), but it will take many more years before the clinical trials and safety approvals are complete. And not everyone will want to undergo an eye surgery to try to regain some vision, either. Fortunately, robots and wearable technology continue to improve, and these gadgets could become very useful for the blind (and the rest of us, too). Maybe we won’t just see telecommuting iPads for remote workers — but also robot assistants for casual and everyday uses, as well.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.
