Enhancing Lives with Light: Philips’ Partnership with Perkins School for the Blind

An 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.

The video explaining the background of the product and its potential impact is worth watching.
