Biel Glasses makes smart glasses that can detect challenges in a persons environment and alert them so they can navigate more easily without bumping into obstacles. They do this by utilizing blended reality, 3d Vision, and artificial intelligence algorithms that recognize barriers in the form of overlay text and graphics over the real time feed being recorded by the glasses.
When Biel, Jaume Ping and Constanza Luceros child, was a young child, he used to tip over a lot and had difficulty navigating environments. Right after being detected with low vision, the moms and dads established Biel Glasses– a company that makes clever glasses to enhance movement and personal autonomy for their child and others with low vision.
