Taipei, Nov. 8 (CNA) “BlindNavi,” a mobile navigating app designed and developed by four
Taiwanese university students for visually impaired users, won the junior prize at the Red Dot Awards in Berlin on Friday.
The app won the junior prize and 10,000 euros (NT$357,700) at the awards ceremony at Konzerthaus Berlin.
The BlindNavi app “helps blind people to reach independence when navigating in unknown environments. The developers have spent much effort on simplifying the interaction both for planning a trip and for traveling autonomously,” the jury said.
“This outstanding work is a commendable showcase project for young designers. We are proud to award the project with the highest honor for a student work at the Red Dot Award: Communication Design-the Red Dot: Junior Prize,” said the jury. [FULL STORY]
