‘In Vision Eye Device’ that enables blind people to see
In groundbreaking innovation, 22-year-old Pakistani student, Muhammad Hamza Khan has developed a device called ‘In Vision Eye Device’ that enabled blind people to make sense of the world around them.
Talking to Dialogue Pakistan, Hamza Khan told about the significance of this device that a blind person could hang the device around his neck, after which, wherever he will go, the device would inform him about the things in the surrounding.
Hamza Khan explained that this device is based on Artificial intelligence which is made up of 180 models and on the predictions of these models device indicate about the obstacles.
“If you have a car, chair or even a person is in front of you, the device will detect and indicate you in form of audio that “XYZ obstacle is front of you,” he added.
The innovator said that this device needs more modifications as he wants to reduce the size of the device, and to add the IOT based camera for the live navigation of the blind person.

“It doesn’t weigh much, you can wear it anywhere, and it has a great battery backup of 8 to 10 hours,” Khan said.
