I aught to have said Ultracane which you probably have heard of. The original name for it was the bat cane. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Saqib" <Saqib500@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Sounds good. I have a bat cane and I do think that it's a very good device that made my movement quite a lot easier. The only thing with the bat cane that it's badly manufactured. Lets hope that this one is manufactured properly as it were and soled at a more affordable price.

Cheers,
Amro

This sounds very much like the old batcane with the addition of being to identify certain colours

     Primpo to introduce 'Isonic', its revolutionary white cane for the
visually impaired
           [ Joshua 2010-03-22 ]

SEOUL, Korea (AVING Special Report on 'Hong Kong Electronics Fair
2010') -- <Visual News> Primpo Co., Ltd. (CEO Jai Kim, www.primpo.com)
will introduce its revolutionary new cane product for the visually
impaired, "Isonic", at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, to be held for four
days from April 13 to 16, 2010. The company will participate in the
exhibition as part of a project initiated by the district administration
of Gangnam-gu, to assist Korean firms in their overseas marketing
activities.

     Unlike conventional white canes, with which a user can not detect
obstacles above waist height, the "Isonic" model can detect obstacles
within a range of 25 degrees horizontally and 50 degrees vertically with
an integrated supersonic sensor.

The product can also detect obstacles within a distance of 2 meters, as well as very slim objects, narrower than 3cm. With decreasing distance
to an object, the cane's vibrating indicator sends a stronger signal to
the user, pinpointing the location of the obstacle.

     A feature to inform a visually impaired user of an object's color
draws special attention. With a color sensor attached, the user is
informed by voice messages of 10 detectable colors and their brightness,
including red, orange and blue.

     Field tests conducted with 15 people in September of 2009 yielded
very satisfying results.

The CEO of Primpo, Jai Kim, said, "The ultimate functionality of the
"Isonic" is to allow the visually impaired to move around freely without
having to rely on a conventional cane. Prior to developing this product,
we conducted a survey with more than 600 handicapped students and
teachers. Among others, the color indication feature drew the most
attention."
