A new business which is based in the U.S. called Aira has built smart glasses that can enable visually impaired customers to enhance their vision in their normal day activities. The glass is literally developed to make life easier for people who cannot see. The glasses are actually based on Google glass which allows an agent to see what the blind person could see in real time.
The agents enable blind people to go about with daily activities such as grocery shopping, walking on streets, calling an Uber, etc. Aira claims that the system is not built to replace existing traditional assistance like a guide dog or cane but it is rather designed to supplement and improve them.
Aira is available in several options, 200 minutes of access for $129 a month, or 400 minutes for $199 a month. The smart glasses are currently available in the U.S. as a subscription plan.
