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!
Zoomax offers a myriad of products for individuals with visual impairments.  The company offers a full line of low vision products including handheld, portable, and desktop video magnifiers.  The company now offers their first wearable: introducing Acesight.
According to their website, "Acesight is a pair of electronic glasses that enable people with severe low vision to regain their visual independence."  With this lightweight wearable, users can watch TV, play on the computer, and so much more.  
Features of Acesight include:
  • They can convert your world into a variety of high contrast colors (for example, light text on a dark background)
  • Super-fast refresh rate and an open design that doesn't cover peripheral vision, so you don't get dizzy
  • Lasts more than 4 hours on a full charge
  • Impressive 45º field of view
  • Up to 15x magnification
  • And much, much more
