With literally BILLIONS of apps being downloaded from Apple’s App Store, the iPhone and iPad have become a central part of many people’s lives. We’re fascinated by the myriad of new ways that technology has allowed us to interact with the world. And in the last few years, iOS development has provided us with some truly unique opportunities to develop new and amazing tools for enriching our lives. Location-based searching, augmented reality, cloud computing, and faster and faster mobile networks, the world is quickly becoming smaller; and the average person can find out anything about anything and access all of humanity’s knowledge – right from the palm of their hand.
I built an iPhone/iPod Touch app that works with an inexpensive Google Cardboard headset to digitally enhance the sight of people who are visually impaired using augmented reality. My father is nearly blind and we were looking at a similar product by eSight, but they charge $10,000 USD for their headset. Frustrated by the ridiculous cost, I built my own using an iPod touch, Pebble Watch, and a Google Cardboard, the total cost of which was about $320. I have since included support for a more affordable $25 bluetooth remote instead of a Pebble, reducing the total price to under $300. I've also added support for AppleWatch as well. The custom software will allow people to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, and zoom from the iPhone/iPods camera using the watch as a control. These features can greatly improve what a person with severe visually disabilities is able to see at a tiny fraction of the cost of both existing and upcoming commercial hardware.
