Microsoft’s New ‘Canetroller’ Brings VR To The Visually Impaired
Canetroller is developed by Microsoft. It works with the HTC Vive headset and tracker.
Microsoft recently developed a haptic controller for VR with an unusual target audience in mind: the visually impaired. The goal to develop the device is to let the visually challenged people create an accurate mental map of a virtual space.
As we all know that VR is a great and immersive way for your visualization. But Microsoft brings a new idea into a canetroller so that visually impaired people can also interact with VR. So we can say that it is a good idea for the shake of visually challenged people.
Visually Impaired people commonly use a white cane, a long stick. This new canetroller brings awesome change in this traditional experience. The device converts their touchable environment into virtual reality environment.
This project promise particularly in helping to individuals with visual impairments learn to travel confidently through various environments.
