Foresight Augmented Reality was recently featured on Atlanta's 11Alive News. See how one of our premier Community Partners, Taco Mac, uses FAR to help the visually impaired and blind.
Our FAR system can be used in almost any environment that presents challenges to the visually impaired and blind. Watch this video to see how effective FAR can be in helping the visually impaired and blind better understand their surroundings.
In this video, you can see how FAR can be used to help our co-founder, David Furukawa, visualize what is around him as he walks down a local street. The bluetooth beacons in this video were temporarily placed on public property so not in the optimal location at some businesses. Once inside a FAR Accessible business, FAR has the ability to identify bathroom locations, emergency exits, and even read menus using text to speech.
Things that seem simple like finding a hotel room can be a huge challenge for the visually impaired and blind. In this video, you can see how FAR can help a user locate their hotel room in a FAR Accessible hotel. For situations when a hotel is not FAR Accessible, we will be selling personal FAR beacons a user can put on their hotel room door or anywhere they want to locate.
If you are visually impaired or blind, get the FAR Vision app on your Android or iPhone. FAR Vision helps bring greater independence by providing audio or large text descriptions at FAR Accessible locations.
