Current visual aids can be clunky, obstrusive, or require extensive care and training

Eliminate white canes and seeing dogs to give the visually impaired independence

Bees have 3 eyes on the top of their head that detect light and motion to help them “see� in the dark hive.

How can we apply this to an aid for the visually impaired?

Honeycomb texture mimics aesthetics of bee eyes Faceted surfaces provide unique texture
