Casey and Jack from Apollo Creative made a trip to the NEC, Birmingham this week to visit both Naidex and the Dementia Care and Nursing Home 2018. Both shows are a must visit for people and businesses in the market for independent living and elderly patient care. This year, both shows were very well attended as visitors flocked over two days to see the latest innovations in mobility aids, sensory technologies, communication software and much more.
Both Casey and Jack were delighted to see Apollo Creative customers and in particular new faces who are looking to expand their existing portfolio of products to include sensory equipment as this market continues to grow into different sectors.
We’ve put together a few highlights from both of the shows that Casey and Jack saw and wanted to share with you:
1. Eye Synth – Smart Glasses for the Blind
Website: Eye Synth Website
One of the most impressive pieces of tech at the show were smart wearing glasses, Eye Synth. Designed in Spain these glasses are made for partially blind and blind people to interact with the world around them. Taken from the description, “Eyesynth brings the most powerful assistive technology for totally and partially blind people. The glasses convert your surrounding 3D space into intuitive sounds. Easy to use, powerful and beautifully designed, to deliver the most empowering User Experience”
Using vibration on the side of your head make these glasses very powerful for a user to understand and interact with them. Certainly, one to watch for the near future.
