The BuzzClip: Wearable Mobility Tool for the Blind

The BuzzClip is a small and discreet wearable for people that are blind or partially sighted. The device uses ultrasound to detect obstacles that may lie directly in one’s path. It then notifies the user of these obstacles through intuitive vibrations, allowing the user to safely navigate around any objects that they may encounter.

The BuzzClip has two selectable ranges: a 1-meter range and a 2-meter range. Users can gauge the distance to an object within the specified range through intuitive vibrations from the BuzzClip:

  • The frequency and intensity of the vibrations increase as an obstacle gets closer to the user (or vice versa)
  • At about arm’s length (50 cm) there will be 3 quick vibrations warning the user to stop and make sure the path ahead is clear.
