b.maps

by Mihai Irimescu

A device that transforms real-time maps into something that blind people can see, helping them search and find the place that they want to go. The device uses the phone (and it's physically connected with it) and an app installed on the phone.
The device uses a grid of small electromagnetic actuators to construct the image and gps or bluetooth beacons for positioning and orientation.
The device can be used to learn, play and even send a heart to the one you love, so she can feel it.
