A new app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad promises to help blind and partially sighted people retrace their steps indoors using augmented reality.
For many years now, navigation apps have proven extremely useful for blind people when outdoors, but indoor navigation has remained a challenge.
The Clew app (links to the iTunes store) won’t let you find a location indoors (such as inside a shopping mall) but it would let you retrace your steps back from where you entered the mall for example. As you walk around the device drops virtual breadcrumbs so that your walk is tracked and then you can retrace those steps using the navigation provided by the device.
Is this something you would use? Have you tried it yet? Drop us a comment below.
