You Won't Believe What This Suit Can Do!
This is not just an ordinary suit. This suit is invented and designed to help blind people move around freely without a cane.
The bat's navigation system has inspired Inti Condo, the Ecuadorian student inventor of the suit, to create a costume that can help blind people walk, move around and do things without intense supervision.
""The Suit is equipped with ultrasonic sensors to enable the person navigate in Different surroundings. It emits Vibrations Direct to the person and of WARN Different objects near HIM," Inti Condo, the Creator's Suit"
Condo's invention is a result of a school project. According to him, it represents an electronic copy of a biological navigation system used by bats. He called his innovative project as Runa Tech (Human Technology) in Kechua.
Runa Tech has a total of 7 important sensors. These sensors are strategically located at areas of human body including the waist, hands and shoulders. It warns the wearer of threats and obstacles such as staircases. It will intensely vibrate when the person wearing it is close to a dangerous object and/or obstacles preventing possible accidents.
The Runa Tech costume will cost around $5000. But, it's not yet commercially available in the market due to the fact that it still needs modification that can make it water and weather proof.
The project already attracted numerous private investors who are very much willing to improve and enhance this life changing suit.
