Designer selected for London exhibition

Former Warwick Academy pupil Sam Dill's final-year project at Brunel University in the United Kingdom has been selected for the prestigious New Designers 2016 exhibition at London's Design Centre next week.

The event showcases the best of the UK's emerging design talent and Mr Dill's “Eyeassistant”, a modular wireless camera system, will have pride of place.

Mr Dill, 21, told The Royal Gazette: “Visual impairment is a hugely debilitating condition and can have drastic effects on independence and quality of life.

“At the heart of my system is a camera module that can be clipped to a range of accessories and send video images via wi-fi to phones, tablets or PCs.

“Attached to a pen it could selectively enlarge sections of a document or to your index finger and enlarge the printed word in a book. While a simple stand aids taking part in hobbies.

“Users can easily control the levels of magnification, brightness and contrast to make the most of remaining vision.”
