Tactile feedback gloves for smart devices which let blind and partially sighted people perceive printed text as Braille. The glove has a special Braille cell right under the index finger which can project any character as Braille to the user's fingertip. This is connected via bluetooth to our reader app which uses the camera of a smart device to track text and the finger of the user. GlovEye leverages the power of Microsoft's cutting edge AI technology to provide the best possible reading experience.
Team GlovEye consists of three Hungarian university students from Budapest. Boglarka Zemko (studies international business) is a well-experienced project manager leaving nothing undone. Krisztian Klinko (studies electrical engineering) is the man behind the idea and the hardware of GlovEye. Adam Fulop (studies computer engineering) tackles the coding part to make things work.
