A project log for 3D Haptic Vest for Visually Impaired and Gamers

This project's goal was to make a vest that a visually impaired or gamer could use when moving around in their environment(real or virtual).

I added a button to the vest so that the visually impaired person can send an email to someone who can help them in case they have fallen or need help. The email address and message are preconfigured. It uses Wi-Fi to make the connection.

9/28/14 Update:  The additional button on the vest, when pushed, now sends an email to a remote assistant that includes a picture taken by the Kinect. This way the assistant can call the wearer and tell them what is in the picture.
