We are developing an affordable assistive technology device for the visually impaired. It is a smart glass that costs less than $200, which is very cheap compared to the existing options and includes many vital features felt necessary by all of the users we interviewed. The features we are developing have never been implemented before. They are designed keeping in mind the specific needs of users in developing countries, where navigation aids and inclusive architecture are often lacking in public places.
