Smart Glasses for the Blind

Better than an angel on your shoulder,  Aira.io (pr. EYE-rah)  puts a human assistant in your ear! Their glasses are equipped with earphone, mic, and wide-angle camera to  livestream imagery of what the wearer sees back to Aira. There, a human monitor observing the footage can offer real-time verbal instructions or information to the subscriber. For a vision-impaired individual this could offer a new level of freedom and mobility, with Aira agents offering everything from location guidance,  to pointing out where the building elevator panel or doorknob is located.
