Abstract:
    Visum is a pair smart glasses for visually challenged people to overcome the barriers of blindness using AI through an audio feedback and enable them to work and live like normal and healthy people.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    With the population of more than 289 Million blind people all around the world, face enormous problems while dealing with routine day to day life. We have categorized these problems into 3 major categories. >Independence >Inaccessibility >Unawareness from Environment

How will the solution works
    visum will have cameras, sensors and an earpiece for audio feedback. Glasses will be connected to the user's cellphone through visum's own application.The way these glasses work is just similiar to natural human eye. It captures the image and send it to the brain. Brain which is cell phone in our case extracts the information from image and either feed it to the user or make decessions for the user depending upon the situation. User will be able to hear through the guidance through the earpiece.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The market is not really populated. We’ve only one competitor a company named orcam. They’re offering 4 features in their strip that attach to glasses along with a box to carry in 3500$.
