Results and Effectiveness
The app mimics the principles of FaceTime or Skype video calling to turn the smartphone into the eyes for a blind person. To launch the app, the blind double tap their phone, which then contacts several volunteers simultaneously. The volunteer that answers becomes the eyes for the blind person. Using the in-built camera on the blind person’s smartphone, the volunteer guides him to do whatever he wishes to do.
The blind have always led a restrictive life. This app has the potential to change that by giving them the freedom to move around and make choices on their own.
Creative Execution
We developed 'Lend an Eye' - an app not only helps the blind get from point A to B unsupervised, but also enables them to make choices the way we do.
Insights, Strategy and the Idea
We wanted to enrich the lives of the blind by enabling them to do the things they had never done before.
