The sunu band is a wrist-worn smart watch which uses sonar technology (echolocation) to provide haptic (vibration) feedback regarding the user's surroundings and other information. Used in conjunction with a guide dog or white cane, it can improve spacial awareness and provide information on obstacles in a user's path that are above ground level up to 16 feet away. This smart-band augments your personal awareness, and reduces accidents to the body, chest, arms and head.
