Telepathy Walker – Eyewear for Discoveries while Walking

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2016-03-23

The world around you is full of wonders. So much so that we need a device and applications that under no matter what condition, anyone can get around safely and see things they’ve never noticed before. That is why we built Telepathy Walker, the world’s first eyewear for entertaining and smart walk. With voice commands enabled, Walker provides totally handsfree walking experiences. You can even have a VoIP call on Walker’s chat application at the same time. Walker’s navigation and local discovery application also adopts augmented reality and highly intuitive user interface so that anyone, even the directionally challenged, never have trouble using while walking; all you have to do is tell Walker what you are up to and follow an augmented-reality pointer. Walker’s potential applications include, but not limited to location-based AR gaming, vision sharing, and simultaneous translation for international travel so that you can explore this beautiful world in ways you’ve never experienced before. Walker’s sunlight-proof display makes it a must-have tool for your sunny day walks.

Review from Kickstarter
@Paul Koerber Thanks for your questions! -What colors will the Walker be available in?
For Kickstarter campaign, white and black are the two available colors. Future color variation depends on user feedback! -Why is the black edition so much more expensive?
Since we have limited lots, manufacturing the Black edition costs little more than the regular(white) edition. We needed to put little extra on the price tag. -How easy is it to install apps from your app store?
It is very easy.
1: Create Telepathy account
2: Activate Telepathy Walker and pair to your account.
3: Choose apps at store, and synchronize Telepathy Walker -Does that require a USB connection to a computer?
No, it does not require a USB connection, but it requires wireless LAN connection. If you are a programmer, you can do further work by connecting Telepathy Walker to PC by USB cable -Connection (how) to a phone?
Telepathy Walker can be connected to your phone via WiFi or Bluetooth. -The Walker does not have GPS from what I can read.
Telepathy Walker has GPS in it!

-How sturdy is the unit? $350 dollars (early bird consumer friendly to three year warranty version) is double the price of the early bird Telepathy Walker is as sturdy as other made-in-Japan consumer electronics products. We've also conducted various endurance tests to ensure the device's sturdiness. The reason why we created the 3-year Warranty Edition is just that we didn't want our potential supporters to miss out on Telepathy Walker just because it doesn't come with warranty

I am reviewing my pledge for this product and I have some last minute questions! What colors will the Walker be available in? Why is the black edition so much more expensive? How easy is it to install apps from your app store? Does that require a USB connection to a computer? Connection (how) to a phone? The Walker does not have GPS from what I can read. Where does it get its position information? I would love to have (or even write) an app to aid with geocaching! How sturdy is the unit? $350 dollars (early bird consumer friendly to three year warranty version) is double the price of the early bird!

@Denise whitney Hello Denise, Thank you very much for your inquiry and support!
Telepathy Walker is not a low vision device, but we definitely would like to find out if there is any way this device can help the blind or visually impaired with personal navigation. Hope the explanation below will help you figure out if Telepathy Walker is a right choice: Telepathy Walker enables intuitive navigation system mainly through visual assistance, using augmented reality technology.
What this means is that if a person's visual acuity is too low for the person to see the device's visual cue (i.e. an augmented reality pointer https://www.youtube.com/watch… ), he or she cannot benefit much from it. If the main problem lies in the speed of real-time information updates, Telepathy Walker in itself may not be of great value as the speed is highly dependent on the internet connection and satellite locations. However, if the problem is having to stop and check directions over and over again, Telepathy Walker will be a right choice as you can see the device's navigation screen always in your view. Please send us a private message if you would like to discuss further privately. Bests, Telepathy Japan Team

Review from Kickstarter
My husband is legally blind and he used to use google maps but it's changed so that it doesn't update smoothly when you are getting on and off the bus. In other words it messes up the directions and makes it easy to get lost. This seems like a really neat option, because you don't need to stop, check and stop again, but its a lot of money for something that may or may not be what I need. What info can you give me for my situation?
