Bionics + Augmented Reality + Artificial
in bionics technology will play
the leading role in developing virtual
travel devices for blind persons.
bionics technologies will give birth to
a radically new brain management
technology. It will help the brain to
create images. Blind people will be able
consists of photoreceptors that
transform the light to the current that
is transmitted by the optic nerve
to the brain. Some artificial
vision devices for the blind (visual
prostheses) have already been developed,
yet their resolution is currently too
low. It is likely to take much longer
than 10 years to develop a comprehensive
high-resolution visual prosthesis
technology, yet some focused
applications, such as virtual travel
devices, can be developed by 2030.
Which POPULAR SERVICE WILL FADE OUT
current-level services for blind people
(audio-tours, computer aids, travel
books, etc.) will fade out.
WHAT NEW SERVICE WILL FADE IN
product for the mass market would
include photos famous historic places.
Video tours will follow.
Complete Sensory Immersion
brain management technologies will help
engage some other senses as well.
Virtual travelers will be able to hear
local sounds along their way through the
territory, feel local aromas, touch
objects, talk to the e-guide or local
Sensory Immersion tours will become a
worldwide service for all people.
Client-specific products will follow.
For instance, blind persons will be able
to see faces of their dear ones and
travel virtually together with them.
