#05 - Let's Talk WeWALK

9/25/2019
More
WeWALK is a $500 device that was designed by a blind person. It's designed to be fitted on a white cane to turn it into a "smart cane." I use the phrase "smart cane" in quotes here because I question the legitimacy and functional application of this so-called revolutionary device. It may change the world, and the lives of low vision and blind individuals, or it may fail miserably. Only time will tell. For more information and links, visit www.azizaskswhy.com
