Niira Glasses

Sensotec, a leader in assistive technology, and Eyesynth, a pioneer in spatial audio solutions, have announced a strategic partnership to launch the NIIRA smart glasses. Designed to empower blind and visually impaired individuals, the company promises that these glasses will offer “unprecedented freedom and mobility”.

The NIIRA glasses, showcased at the SightCity exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, utilize advanced AI to convert visual information into intuitive auditory cues, allowing users to recognise objects around them and avoid obstacles via real-time audio alerts.

In a press statement, Ivar Illing, the Product Manager at Sensotec said, “We’ve seen many attempts to bridge the visual and auditory worlds over the years, Experiencing NIIRA for the first time was truly amazing. This technology has the potential to transform how blind and visually impaired individuals interact with their surroundings.”

Antonio Quesada, Founder and CEO of Eyesynth, added, “After extensive research and user testing, we have developed the NIIRA glasses to translate the visual world into intuitive, pleasant, and easily understandable audio cues, providing a high-quality, user-friendly mobility solution.”

NIIRA has a number of features and capabilities that it considers unique, including:

  • 3D Perception: Users can discern shapes, spaces, and object depth with precision.
  • Natural and Intuitive Sound Language: The system uses a non-verbal, easy-to-learn sound language.
  • Bone Conduction Audio: This technology keeps ears free to maintain environmental awareness.
  • Long-lasting Battery: Provides up to 10 hours of continuous use.
