Sensus is a wearable navigation device for the blind and visually impaired.

It uses an infrared sensor which detects an obstacle and sends a vibration that intensifies when an obstacle is getting closer. The device can be attached to almost anything. It comes with several accessories that allow it to be clipped on to clothing, attached to a white cane or worn as a ring. These parts fit in a compact case where Sensus can also be charged. The device's form replicates the softness and comfort of a pilow, making it an object of desire as well as necessity.
