I believe that each and every one of us has, at some point in our lives, experienced the agony of having a stubbed toe. It is just one of those things that we would like not to have to deal with, but unfortunately, it is an unavoidable component of life.
Despite the fact that the majority of us have a solution in mind, we still need to find a way to cope with this issue. Just try to picture how challenging it would be to get around in the world if you had no vision at all and had to do so.
Canes and other walking aids, such as other objects, may be used by people who are visually impaired so that they do not accidentally run into objects as they move around their environments. It’s even possible that they live with a canine companion who is always by their side.
These individuals now have access to a solution that is technologically advanced, and it will undoubtedly be of assistance to a great number of individuals who are blind or have some other form of visual impairment.
What would happen if you were able to wear shoes that warned you when you were going to collide with an object, such as a curb or a piece of furniture? It is quite similar to a sensor that is installed in a vehicle and has the purpose of warning the driver when they are likely to collide with something when they are backing up.
That is now a possibility as a result of the efforts of an organization based in Australia called Tec-Innovation. They designed shoes with an integrated sensor that will either vibrate or make a noise in order to alert the wearer when they are getting close to an obstruction while they are running. They are called as InnoMake, and they have the ability to identify an obstruction that is up to 4 meters away.
The sensor can be inserted into the slots on the shoes, which are also present on the shoes themselves. The rechargeable battery will last for seven days, and when it finally runs out of juice, you will need to place it on the charger for close to three hours.
You can use it even if you don’t have a smartphone, and if you do buy the sensors, you’ll have access to a free app that works with them. You have the ability to make modifications to the way in which they function, such as changing the minimum distance or the way in which you are notified.
The sensor also provides a number of additional capabilities, such as resistance to water and a number of different intelligent modes that are capable of providing even more assistance.
