Augmented Body Proposal

I was eight years old when I first had to get glasses. Since then, every eye appointment I have had has shown that my eyesight is almost always decreasing. Sight is one of the most important senses that we have that some people unfortunately lack. I am interested  in Eye Write. A team is working together to essentially create a low cost eye-tracking system that allows ALS patients to draw using their eyes.

 

My idea behind this project is similar but also opposite. Technological advances would allow for people who either completely lack or have failing eyesight to be able to see based on their other senses.

They will not only be able to recognize certain things based on touch, hearing, taste, and smell but technology will now allow for them to fully see based on their reaction to these other senses.
