Elevator pitch:

The Sixth Sense is a hand-held device that aids visually impaired people in movement. It applies concepts in Echolocation, IoT and Artificial Intelligence to become ultimate walking aid far better than the white cane.

Pitch:

We believe that integrating difference creates healthy societies A society that involves everyone in development despite the differences in people not only becomes healthy socially but also grows economically. Disability should not be a hindrance to anyone willing to work towards progress of the society. We work to ensure the visually impaired not only get heard in life discussions but also fully participate in all spheres and derive fulfillment from whatever they do.

Message from CEO-Brian Mwenda

“We believe the right to life includes a right to a life. Without proper means to access the physical environment it is difficult for the visually impaired to get involved in many activities. We make assistive devices that facilitate smooth integration into the society and as is already evident, the visually impaired can do virtually anything. Everyone has a right to experience the beauty of our world.” “We believe the right to life includes a right to a life.
