EyeRing is a wearable intuitive interface that allows a person to point at an object to see or hear more information about it. We came up with the idea of a micro camera worn as a ring on the index finger with a button on the side, which can be pushed with the thumb to take a picture or a video that is then sent wirelessly to a mobile phone to be analyzed. The user receives information about the object in either auditory or visual form. Future versions of our proposed system may include more sensors to allow non-visual data capture and analysis. This finger-worn configuration of sensors opens up a myriad of possible applications for the visually impaired as well as the sighted.
I think this ring would also be great for kids too and also possibily help us learn different languages!
