It is not everyday that you get to take something exciting like the Magic Leap One and creatively use it for fundamental social needs that are all too often relegated to an afterthought.
We are developing an assistive indoor visual navigator to aid persons with blindness/low vision. The nature of the Magic Leap One coupled with our application could be a game changer for the large number of veterans in rehab, the scores of corporations seeking workplace ADA Compliance, and for young adults having to build up their Orientation & Mobility skills.
The Magic Leap device is uniquely suited for this application as it is a fully self contained general purpose computing/sensory platform. Our working MVP- the Assistive Vision Navigator exploits depth mapping, audio, haptic feedback and instant calculations so a person with blindness can simply ask for example, "How far is the wall?" and get an instant spoken answer.
The video demo below shows an early working version.
For those interested, we will be presenting at the upcoming CSUN Assistive Technology Conference in California on March 14, 2019.
