Ford developed a new way for blind individuals to experience an outdoor view.

Ford recently developed a car window that would allow a blind individual to ‘feel the view.’ The window utilizes a camera that takes photos of the outside surroundings. The image is then projected onto the window, and the window will vibrate when touched. A blind person could recreate the view using vibrations.

As said on CNN, “Ford developed it in collaboration with Aedo, an Italian company specializing in technology to assist the visually impaired. A Ford spokesman said the company has no plans to offer the device for sale…. Ford’s “Feel the View” technology might be put to its best use as a tablet a person could walk with…. Unfortunately, the technology simply wouldn’t work in something as small as a smartphone or tablet, said Marco Alù Saffi, a spokesman for Ford of Italy.”
