glasses that allow blind people to see the world through sounds

Physical limitations will not cease to exist, either by birth or caused by accident. There are people with different disabilities around the world that thanks to technology can be overcome, giving their users a better quality of life. Many people who have lost their limbs have been able to walk again and take objects using these gadgets; The same is true for people with hearing limitations, and now science offers blind people the possibility of seeing what surrounds them to know what the world they are going through is like.

That's right, as the company Eyesynth, Thinking of these people being an approximate 300 million among the blind and people with low vision – who had not yet been approached in the best way to offer them the possibility of enjoying this sense., has created a system similar to the "biosonation" of certain animals, such as bats, which converts sound into "vision" with the use of a wearable that, apart from having a great design, is loaded with the highest technology to give life to a meaning that they create completely lost.

It is for this reason, according to the web portal Portaltic, that Eyesynth has developed glasses for blind people who are capable of converting spatial and visual information into understandable audio. Called the same as the company, these lenses provide an unprecedented level of identification to date, according to company spokespersons, since thanks to a 3D camera and a software algorithm that transforms space and objects into abstract sound that the brain is able to decode, allowing, in this way, to know information about the size, position and shape of nearby objects.


Operation method

In this sense, Antonio Quesada, Ceo of Eyesynth, explains that this process has been conceptualized as Increased sense, whereby through technology, other senses are fed with extra information, so that the impaired or non-existent sense is, to a large extent, compensated. In this way, the company wanted to focus on the blind or low vision population with these glasses and, to this end, it has implemented a curious technological method to transmit sound.

Said method It is based on cochlear headphones that transmit sound through the cranial bone, which in addition, the visual cortex is capable of decoding. This fact allows the ear canal to be freed, causing better safety for the user and reducing hearing fatigue. One of the main advantages of this device is that the signal that is sent and received is not verbal, so wearable can be used by people around the world, regardless of the language they use.

In the same way, it could be known that these glasses scan the environment in 3D, giving information on actual distances, selectable measurement of 0.5, 2 and 6 meters- to the person who is wearing them, so, for example, if the user is sitting to the table and does not need to scan far, the precision of the wearable varies, allowing it to be adapted according to the need at all times.

The first of them <strong>it is a sweep in which the visually impaired person sweeps the environment by turning his neck</strong>. In this way, the glasses analyze only the central area and act as if it were a cane, providing the same information. With the second way<strong> the complete panorama can be perceived, the lenses analyze the entire landscape, so the user simultaneously listens to all the spaces and objects in front of him</strong>. It is a very powerful option and the user no longer has to move his neck, but listens to the shapes to his left and right, as well as upper and lower.</p><p>We can describe the product and the wonders it offers for many more words; Nevertheless, <strong>There is nothing better than hearing from the same people who have visual difficulties the experience lived with the use of this device.</strong> So, in a video published through YouTube by the company itself, it introduces some of these people while they test the Eyesynth glasses in different situations, both indoors and outdoors. They will be able to observe brief fragments of these tests carried out by the company, but in them the objective is captured, to recognize things without having to see them.</p><p>In the same way, the video presents as specialists in the neurological area explains the research that has triggered the creation of this wearable, taking as hypothesis, according to the neurologist and scientist in charge of the research study, Dr. Antonio Belenguer, the demonstration that ,<strong> Through the use of the apparatus, visually impaired individuals undergo stimulation of the visual cortex that they can use to integrate it into their daily lives</strong>.</p><p>It was learned that the Eyesynth glasses will be available for marketing at the beginning of the next year and their sale price will be around 1400 euros, approximately. Currently, the company has carried out a financing project on Kickstarter that allows you to get a pair of these lenses for 840 euros, a quite considerable discount.</p><p><img class=

Undoubtedly, These glasses enter the world of wearebles to change the lives and habits of many millions of visually impaired people around the world, giving its users a quality of life that they would never have imagined. Innovative, easy enough to use and learn, this invention has come to revolutionize the world of advanced technology for the benefit of those who suffer from disabilities.
