The first wearable technology for people who are blindUsing ultrasonic waves to detect the obstaclesNotifying the user through vibrations/buzzer sound Third eye for people who are blind is an innovation which helps the blind people to navigate with speed and confidence by detecting the nearby obstacles using the help of ultrasonic waves and notify them with buzzer sound or vibration. They only need to wear this device as a band or cloth. According to WHO 39 million peoples are estimated as blind worldwide. They are suffering a lot of hardship in their daily life.
