Augmenting reality for the visually impaired

We are grateful for the openness and collaboration happening with the Braille Institute. We have learned so much in so little time about how the visually impaired use "smart" devices like iPhones and iPads.

Usability testing Smartstones with the blind to help inform interaction design and lifestyle context.

Here's the punchline... for people that are totally blind, screen size doesn't matter. We're getting great feedback and early learnings about how useful and adaptive @Smartstones are for the visually impaired. This is informing our creative work in colors, materials, finishes and interaction design. More to come...

We are excited to launch our first product so we can get these into the hands of everyone - and introduce the most inclusive wearable communication device for non-verbal communication and presence sensing.
