How safe is a regular blind cane?
We have done it. We have raised over $10,000 to start making the 100 See Me
Canes. I want to thank you all who have supported the crowd funding of the
building of the first fully lighted blind cane. You can continue supporting the
build and 100% will go to making more canes. As of October 28,2022, we are
funded to build 102 canes.
What is the See Me Cane?
The See Me Cane is a lighted blind cane (traditionally called the white cane). The See Me Cane provides a new level in safe navigation for the blind. The bright internal light within the See Me Cane makes the user more visible in low-light conditions. The unique See Me Cane feels like a normal blind cane, but as the user sweeps and taps the lighted See Me Cane, it makes a great light show, drawing people’s attention to the cane and to its visually impaired user.
How Does It Work?
The See Me Cane is a simple but powerful blind cane. It comes in different sizes (from 2 feet to 6 1/2 feet). Running on a rechargeable battery, this LED lighted cane can be seen by nighttime drivers up to 100 yards away. The handle has two buttons: one for the on/off function and another that causes the cane to vibrate letting the user know its on/off status.
