Feel the World.

As of 2019, there are more than 285 M+ people from around the world suffering from any one type of visual impairment according to WHO. And 30 M+ people from around the world suffer from near or complete blindness. There is a steady lack of technology in the market focused at helping this group of people.

 

ioptyc is an assistive technology which utilizes a combination of visual recognition technology and distance judgement systems to help the visually impaired navigate and understand the world around them.
