---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a modified white cane for users who are blind or have low vision. The Light Stick is a white cane and voice output reading machine and money identifier for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The Light Stick has an obstacle sensor at the end of the cane section to alert the user of obstacles ahead. The modular handgrip detaches from the cane, and it can serve as a voice output scanner that can read written text aloud to the user through the included wireless earpiece that fits in the top of the handgrip when not in use. The handgrip can also be used to identify currency and coins. Braille markings ensure that the user can reassemble the handgrip and cane sections correctly. TITLE: The Wonder Stick!
