In this week’s VIP, Nelson and James are joined by Christopher McMillan. Listen in as they discuss the top stories on Cool Blind Tech, and as always, they will bring you some great Cool Picks.
On August 21, much of the United States will experience total darkness in the middle of the day as a full Solar eclipse of the Sun sweeps across the country.
A Solar eclipse is always an exciting event, and people who are blind want to be able to experience it as well.
Neuro X Labs have just released BlindSight, a free Android app that implements advanced AI features, narrating the scenes fed to it by the phone camera. It requires no internet connection, collects no user data and the app is only 50MB. The app is in its early stages but Neuro X Labs are looking for feedback.
One of the biggest and most important obstacles that blind people face is meaningful employment. The American Foundation for the Blind recognizes this problem, and has established a CareerConnect page on their website that helps blind people overcome some of the difficulties that they encounter when seeking employment.
Watch your step! Nelson is keeping an eye on you with this incredible home security camera system.
James is having a blast recording everything on his iPhone with AudioShare for iOS.
Christopher has his eyes on these glasses from Aira after listening to an unboxing podcast from Cool Blind Tech.
