Where it all started
Kushagra was volunteering for a blind institute in Bangalore, India where he discovered that 90% of the visually impaired cannot read braille.
Meeting Mr. Roger W. Ferguson
We met with Mr. Roger W. Ferguson, former Vice Chair of the US Federal Reserve, where he gave us his support for our mission.
Developing the product
Taking the data we gathered from the research, we gathered a team of industrial, UX, and software engineers to begin developing the product.
Conducting research in London
Once we had built out our MVP, we conducted interviews with faculty and members of RNIB and Beyond Sight to understand the problem better.
Produced first functional model
After months of research, brainstorming, and experimentation, we produced a working model of our smart-glove that yielded 90% accuracy under select conditions.
Launching our first model
Following our research trial with various institutes, we will launch our first user-ready model in December of 2023.
