light guide panel Enhancing Lives with Light: Philips Partnership with Perkins School for the BlindAn inspiring story from Philips Lighting reveals the difference light can make in a child’s life.

Partnering with Perkins School for the Blind in MA, Philips has developed a device that will enable blind and low-vision students to track and engage with light. The “Light Guide Panel” can be programmed in a number of ways, and developers hope it will help children learn how to read, walk, and interact with their environment.
