New technology for the visually impaired and blind.

I can’t believe it is almost the end of February already. We made it though Valentines day unscathed and feeling happy. Life, children, marriage, puppies (gah!) are never perfect or easy, but I have been a pretty lucky lady this far. March brings us closer to Nash’s second birthday, where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday I was freaking out about his vision and unsure about what the future held. Well, I can tell you despite everything the future looks bright. Nash was lucky enough to be born in a time where great leaps are made everyday in the medical field and in technology.

Aipoly vision is one of these leaps it is an app that was created by a team of engineers and entrepreneurs who are building scalable vision intelligence. Aipoly vision is there to help the blind and visually impaired quickly identify objects in their everyday life. The app can identify several hundreds of objects right away, without any training and it can identify colors. For more information you can click this link. Unfortunately, it has not been launched yet on google play, but if you have an iPhone you can download it. I am curious to see it in action. If anyone wants to try it out and give me some feedback I would be incredibly grateful.
