Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Oct 7, 2016

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Have you ever needed to take a picture instantly, but couldn't get your phone out fast enough?  Capturing moments instantaneously just got a whole lot easier with a new device called the Blincam!  
The Blincam is a wearable camera that attaches to any pair of glasses and allows you to take a picture completely hands-free!  Once it's attached to your eyewear, all you have to do is look at what you want a picture of and blink!  It features a patent-pending, eye-movement sensor in the device, which is able to distinguish a natural blink from a deliberate one, so you won't just take random pictures! 
The device pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth, so once you take a picture, it'll automatically upload to your phone.  Then you can easily select the images you'd like to save!
The Blincam is about to enter the crowdfunding stage on October 10.  To learn more or to sign up for updates on the device, go to Blincam.Co.
