There is an estimated number of over 250 million visually impaired people (World Health Organization) in the world and 50 million are using a cane.

Thanks to the ingenuity of a blind inventor, Kursat Ceylan, people who lack sight can more easily navigate the world. The “smart cane,” or WeWalk cane, uses ultrasonic sensors to warn the user of nearby objects and obstacles through vibrations in the handle.

Not only can the cane be paired with a smartphone’s Bluetooth system for easy control but is is also integrated with Voice Assistant and Google Maps Software.
