SONY’S New Camera Has Retinal Projection For The Visually Impaired

Sony has teamed up with Retissa, a company that has designed technology to aid people with low vision, to come up with a camera kit specifically for those who have visual impairments.

The Sony DSC-HX99 RNV is made up of the HX99 compact camera & something called a QD Laser Retissa Neoviewer.

The latter is a viewfinder that is able to project a digital image directly onto the retina of the user through laser retinal projection.

The screen is visible even if you have low vision, you’ll be able to see things clearly through the lens even if you don’t have any corrective lens or eyewear.

You also don’t have to look at it through an LCD display or a virtual screen to be able to see the image you’re taking a picture of since this technology is able to deliver light directly to the eyes.

The camera itself is Sony’s Cyber-shot travel zoom camera with a 24-720mm equivalent 30x zoom lens paired with an 18.2-megapixel 1/2.3-inch image sensor.
