Kinect System Doubles As A Yoga Teacher For The Blind [Video]
Eyes-Free Yoga uses the motion-sensing technology to read body angles and give feedback on how to do the poses.
Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a program that allows the visually-impaired to practice yoga at home without the need for a live instructor.
Eyes-Free Yoga is a program that uses the Microsoft Kinect software to track the user’s body movements and angles and provide auditory feedback on how to perform the yoga poses properly. The program was developed by project lead Kyle Rector and her collaborators Cynthia Bennett and Julie Kientz.
