After I was hit by a car because the driver did not see me, I decided to invent a 2.0 version of the Blind Cane. This new Blind Cane is an easy to use and practical cane that can light up like a light sabre.

I figured that if other traffic participants can actually see the me and identify me as a Visually Impaired person, they will naturally adapt their behaviour. Wielding a light sabre will most probably help me to encourage other people to take notice!

I know the “lighted blind cane” itself is not a new idea. I want to make this great idea of a modern Blind Cane universally available for Visually Impared and Blind (VIB) people all over the world and easy for people re-make them.

The idea is now gaining momentum, see Sam's Blind Life youtube channel for a review.

I start this campaign to gather funds to develop the prototype I now have to production and to initiate a kick starter campaign for worldwide distribution with a viable serviceable product.

This cane will have a massive positive impact on VIB safety, mobility and Quality of Life.
