We believe that technology has huge potential to transform the ways in which blind and partially sighted people get out and about. That is why we've worked with Microsoft to develop a concept of how things might look soon, if we all pull together to make our vision a reality.And here's a vidio demonstrating what this new device would do. Personally, I find its a bit too obtimistic, and even though it would be great if this thing existed, I see to main problems.
1, How much would it cost? I mean, if a screen reader costs like a thousand dollars, I don't want to imagine how much would an incredibly complicated device as this one cost.?
2 Some of the ideas are incredibly difficult to achieve, like when it tells the guy the exact location of his train compartment and seat...
I really hope this thing will eventualy exist, and I hope it will be afortable enough to buy it.
