See Me Cane

There is a new product available to help improve the safety of individuals who are blind: introducing the See Me Cane.  The See Me Cane is a lighted white cane that makes users more visible to others in low-light conditions.  It feels like a traditional white cane, but as the user sweeps and taps the See Me Cane, it creates a light show, drawing people’s attention to the cane and its user.

According to the product’s website:

“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…”
