It seems fitting that a telecommunications company would take the ubiquitous Smartphone, marry it to the cloud and come up with something as brilliant as SightFinder. The visionaries at NTT Service Evolution Laboratories are creating something that could prove miraculous even to those who already expect the unbelievable from tech. While still in prototype phase, with an initial launch in Japan, SightFinder will help the visually impaired as they walk city streets by communicating warnings and directions in real time right to their mobile devices.
