Blindsight

Wouldn't it be great if blind people could be warned of obstructions and or dangerous areas ahead. With this device they could. It is envisioned to start with a normal looking eyeglass frame upon the sides of which are tiny cameras such as are used in many cell phones. The signals from the cameras would be sent to a processing device like the remote I wear around my neck for my hearing aid (ever since I lost my ear to cancer). The remote can process the signals from the cameras and then transmit warnings to wearable electrodes such as were advertised by an Australian company some years ago.
