SmartGlasses, Eating Out

Red Szell tests the new and much talked about SmartGlasses being developed by Oxford University and are you self conscious about eating out?

Reporter Johny Cassidy talks to Dr. Stephen Hicks about the SmartGlasses project, a project using augmented-reality computer technology to bring objects in to sharper relief for people who have low vision, mounted in wearable glasses. Occasional In Touch contributor Red Szell tries out this new technology.
Peter White talks to Susannah Hancock and Richard Pryor about the sometime tricky business of eating out in public when you're visually impaired.
