Apple patents clothing smart for those who have problems of sight and hearing
Apple is working on a technology to be integrated in clothing to provide signals to tactile and / or auditory in people with problems of sight or hearing.
In this patent, Apple explains that the device is capable of mapping the surrounding environment with the data coming from its sensors, so as to provide immediately feedback to the user
For the blind, the device is applicable to the clothing could sync with the iPhone to provide voice directions, while for the deaf would be used touch feedback (vibration) to be applied directly on the Apple Watch or on clothing such as a shirt or a shirt.
These sensors would then be able to guide the user to move without risk in any environment, is also unknown.
Apple could then think of releasing devices of this type applicable to third-party companies in their clothing, or maybe produce her own clothing line smart designed for accessibility.
The patent for persons with sensory disabilities, with reference to sensors that map the environment, shows potentially also ideas that could be applied to a variety of technologies still not developed. This is because this technology provides the possibility to map the environment based on the position and stature of the user, understanding even if an object is moving and from which direction. Technologies, which could in part be integrated directly on an iPhone of the future.
