A recent invention uses virtual reality developed for the gaming world to help people with low vision to see in more detail. Using a headset linked to a camera phone, the device allows the user to choose brightness and magnification levels.
Still in its early trial stage, work is still being done to try to make the device less clunky and to minimize issues with nausea that are common.
It’s always exciting to see what is being developed in the realm of assistive technology and this one is no exception.
We can help people going through vision loss. See how.
