Infiniti (Inclusive Design Challenge 08)

Infiniti was my team's entry in the recent Inclusive Design Challenge (Hong Kong) jointly organized by the British Council and the Helen Hamlyn Centre of the Royal College of Art.

"Why should a partially sighted person compromise their choice because they feel uncomfortable to ask for help? Why should they have difficulty finding a public toilet?"

Infiniti allows the user to stream information using their existing personal mobile GPS technology to position and navigate within the urban environment. Infiniti’s voice activated Bluetooth audio feedback allows partially sighted and blind users to be informed of a sale in a shop window, to find a public toilet, a park or tour a museum or simply choose from a Fast food menu. Infiniti brings increased lifestyle functionality, safety and mainstream appeal to all users.
