Daniel Kish, a 2018 Zero Project awardee took part in a workshop in Vienna at the end of June to share his FlashSonar navigation technique which aids navigation for persons with visual impairments. The workshop was organised by Ashoka Austria, following up on their excellent work partnering with Daniel for the Zero Project Impact Transfer – A programme to find innovative disability solutions and copy them to new places around the world – which was unveiled at the 2018 Zero Project Conference.
Daniel Kish continues to make waves everywhere he goes with his energy and passion for sharing his FlashSonar technique. The technique trains persons with visual impairments to use clicking of their tongue to navigate the environment by echolocation, similar to how bats find their way in the dark.
We are very pleased to see Daniel back in Austria and wish him the best for continuing to spread the word.
