Wayband by WearWorks
WearWorks created Wayband a device to guide you to your destination, using only vibrations, delivering richer, safer, and more intuitive navigation experiences for individuals of all sights. This includes and is not limited to commuters, travelers, marathon runners, cyclists, skiers, the blind, and the visually impaired.
Wayband is a wrist-wearable navigation device designed as a tool to assist the blind and visually impaired.
WearWorks´ patented Haptic Corridor™ gently orients an individual toward their destination with incremental tactile cues and turn-by-turn navigation along the way. Leveraging trusted mapping infrastructure and utilizing a custom app created specifically for both sighted and sightless screen interactions, the device connects with an individual’s smartphone and allows input through voice recognition and gestural controls.
WearWorks focuses on touch, a sense we can all utilize, to create an inclusive experience that goes beyond sight.
