Legally Blind Veteran Patents Brain Control Tech for the Blind

Zuby Onwuta, a legally blind US Army veteran and ex-IBM engineer, has been officially recognized by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), as the inventor of “Think and Zoom: Brain-Control for Blind Assistive Tech”.

The visually impaired, which includes people with low vision, and those who are legally or totally blind, are often restricted by their hand controlled assistive tech and thereby lose out on hours of productivity.

It’s exciting to see a legally blind person invent a way for people like him to have the “holy grail” of hands-free use of blind assistive technology in order to improve user experience and increase productivity.

We’re looking forward to seeing how Think and Zoom will transform the world for the visually impaired!
