A Camas man is hoping to make a difference in the lives of people who are visually impaired.
Milan Slamka has developed Echo-Sense Network Glasses, also known as “Check Mates.”
They can be worn by a sight-impaired person, and audio and video information is live streamed to a caregiver on a remote computer.
“The caregiver can see what the blind person would see and can give instructions and guidance to the wearer,” Slamka said.
