Microsoft engineers have developed a VR-cane for the blind

Specialists of the Redmond IT giant were able to adapt the virtual reality for the blind and visually impaired. Now people with serious visual impairments will be able to use a special VR-cane to recreate an unfamiliar path in virtual reality and train in its passage without risk to health and psyche.

The system consists of a belt on which is fastened a long metal rod holding the walking stick, tracker and VR-helmet HTC Vive. The user acts as usual, when driving, feeling the room with a VR-stick. At the moment when it encounters a virtual object, the vibrators built into the cane begin to vibrate, simulating a collision with the object, signaling the user that they need to stop. In this case, headset headphones reproduce the sound corresponding to the characteristics of the object, for example, a dull blow against a metal tank or knock, characteristic of a collision with wooden furniture. In addition, the system simulates other sensations. The user feels that he is walking on a carpet or tile, he can feel that there is a small obstacle in front, for example a curb.

Now the system has difficulties with simulating walls. Similar obstacles can be felt with the help of a VR-cane, but the headset does not transmit the necessary sounds, causing certain difficulties. Nevertheless, even now the system can help visually impaired and blind people to learn a new route without being exposed to danger and stress. Developers have already tested the VR-stick in humans. Eight out of ten participants could navigate without any problems in virtual reality after ten minutes of using the gadget.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666 ”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
