    The system will be an electronic "seeing aid," allowing the legally blind to see by projecting a video image that has been enhanced to compensate for the wearer's particular vision problem.
    The system will include a frame that will contain the user's prescription lenses overlaid with a headset containing an HD video camera and a pair of LCD screens. The device will be controlled by a handheld unit, which will allow the user to adjust the contrast, focus and brightness as well as zoom in or capture still frames. Live footage of the field in front of the user will be sent by the camera to the controller, where it will be enhanced to suit the user's needs and displayed on both video screens in real time.
