Mudio is a specially designed mobile application to help the visually impaired users perceive the world through melody. The user can take a short video of the surroundings with Mudio, and the app will generate a playlist of music that fits the surrounding atmosphere. With Mudio, the visually impaired will be able to admire the scenery in front of them instead of simply detecting where the objects are. Mudio provides a chance for the visually impaired to perceive the world comprehensively.
This app is currently in development phase and the group behind the project are looking for a group of individuals that can provide valuable feedback and insight from a partially sighted and blind prospective. Please RSVP to join the conversation.
