Finally a cool concept for the blind, a smart cane.
The Cloudandco Smart Cane is the design work of Brandon Cooke and Max Dahl, and is a conceptual product that draws inspiration from a video game joystick to offer users a more ergonomic experience when held in the hand. Created for those with visual impairments, the cane features an extending pole that comes out when the device is turned on to provide users with a compact unit that can be carried and stored just about anywhere.
The conceptual Cloudandco Smart Cane also provides connectivity to your smartphone in order to provide access to navigational information to get around a new location with ease. The top of the unit features a braille panel that will communicate information to the user in a streamlined manner.
