In this Tech Abilities podcast we are talking to Charles from Patriot Vision Industries. Charles gives us an overview of the Low vision line of patriot products. The patriot ViewPoint, a wearable viewer that enhances ones existing vision to bright and clear magnification from across the room.
This device fits over the eyes like goggles and you may be surprised at the clarity and color that jumps to life. Charles also shows us the Patriot Pro 12.9, a portable viewer which utilizes an iPad Pro and a stand that creates like a CCTV experience and text to speech all in one. Toss it in your backpack and with it weighing in at only 8 pounds, it’s going where ever you need to go.
