The Concept of Sonar Reality is the combination of Sonar and Virtual Reality. How this Technology Works is using the Sonar waves which the implant will send out allowing the waves to bounce back helping the person map out the surrounding environment. Once the information is being received it will then be sent to the brain and eye implants to help simulate and visualise the area. The Virtual Reality aspect is then put into affect when the response of the brain triggers the cornea to look for certain colours and shapes within the occupants glasses which will map out the environment outside.
The process we are using for making and testing is using the same technology as the sonar implants that in society now, plus virtual reality technology and neurological technology that allows us too connect all sensory outputs to help the virtual process. Scholarly articles from Ludwig Wallmeier and Roberto W. Flores provides commentary on how echolocation for the blind does work and is effective. Furthermore we can see sites such as national geographic and news atlas reporting of blind people utilising the Sonar implants now. Unfortunately this issue is very relevant in society.
The statistics say 285 million people are impaired and 39 million are blind. If this technology works, it can change a major landscape in society and science innovation. This could change the future of generations of people whom are blind, that there is chance for them to being able to see.
