What is it? This device is called “Brain Port Vision”. It is a device made for blind individuals to help them see the world from a different view. It makes it easy for them to identify objects, and to be more independent by figuring out thing by their own than they normally would. It basically helps them see through their tongue. Which I find very amazing.

………………………………………………………………………………………

How to use it: - Step 1: Place an object in front of the blind individual - Step 2: The glasses from the Brain Port device should be placed on the individual’s face (There is a camera in the glasses send pictures to the brain)

- Step 3: Place the electrical grid on the individual’s tongue. (Electrical grid sends electrical impulses to the tongue, which starts painting a picture to the brain)

- Step 4: Ask the individual to identify what is placed in front of them. cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
