Recently, designers with a vision of the future from all walks of life have found ways to incorporate intelligent technology into their products. While many of these revolutionized products, such as a cat selfie device and a cute pot, simply aim to make life a little more fun; However, some, such as the WeWalk smart cane, strive to make a difference.

Joining the ranks of the Braille Dot watch, WeWALK is a white cane accessory designed to help people with visual impairment through the use of smart technology.

Together, these tools help visually impaired people to fully participate in social life.

Kursat Ceylan, CEO, and co-founder of Young Guru Academy (YGA), the Turkish nonprofit organization behind WeWALK, is familiar with this need for “full participation” firsthand. As an engineer with visual impairment, Ceylan knew that he had found his niche when he decided to use his own experiences to develop such a significant technological device.

“These days we are talking about flying cars, but these people have been using a simple stick,” he told CNN. “As a blind person, when I am at the Metro station I don’t know what my departure is … I don’t know what bus is coming … what stores are around me. That kind of information can be provided with WeWalk.”

This groundbreaking smart cane is available for purchase on the WeWALK website.

WeWALK, an innovative smart cane, is no ordinary walking stick.

Built-in speakers, Google maps, and Voice Assistant—as well as compatibility with a smart phone’s Bluetooth system—help blind people navigate.

The cane can also be tailored to sync with different devices.
