Real time vision for the visually impaired

What if the visually impaired could actually ‘see’ their surroundings?

Aira, a San Diego-based company, has developed smart glasses equipped with a camera which sends live video stream to a remote agent who then narrates what they see in real time over the phone for the visually impaired user.

Just like an audio description of life, the visually impaired can now hope to experience life around in all its sensory glory.

Can smart technology unlock visual sensory experiences for the visually impaired?
