Lead The Way

About

A handheld device to help visually impaired people navigate interior spaces

Lead the Way is a handheld device that helps guide visually impaired users to specific destinations within interior spaces via a series of multidirectional vibrations that inform the user when to turn left or right, continue forward, and even diagonally.
The device brings confidence to visually impaired users and enable them to navigate through intimidating interior spaces including museums, but also hospitals, airports, and shopping malls, without fear of tripping or bumping into objects.
