In a world that’s so involved in AR and VR, the Nomad Wearable’s purpose is much more noble. The Nomad is a wearable that uses LiDAR, or light based radar to guide the visually impaired to locations. The wearable’s usage of LiDAR comes from years of advancement in this technology by the autonomous car projects. It also relies on Blindscape (a map app designed for the visually impaired) to provide audio to the wearer, guiding them specifically through neighborhoods, traffic, and even enabling them to use public transport! If that isn’t the greatest wearable you’ve seen in a while, I don’t know what is!
