Vidya Balan unveils Smartcane device for Visually Impaired

Vidya Balan at the launch and distribution of SmartCane and Plextalk Vachak function by The Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC), St. Xavier’s college, Mumbai on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014.

She looked stunning in a black anarkali with jewellery.

“This device will now integrate visually impaired into the mainstream and make them more independent” Professor Rohan Paul, IIT Delhi, is quoted as saying: “While the white cane is reliable enough to warn people of objects on the ground, and even up to knee-height, visually impaired people are often taken by surprise by over-hanging branches, protruding air-conditioners and parked vehicles. The SmartCane detects such obstacles from a safe distance, helping them avoid it, allowing safe, independent and dignified mobility,” said Vidya Balan.
