I don't think it will be coming to market any time soon. Many prominent
people in the blind comunity have been emailing them asking to be
distributors, investors and beta testers. They have not responded to any
They have also been absent from the blind comunity in the U.S. and they did
not show up at CSUN which is rather strange for a blindness tech product.
Other than that, it is a really awesome product.
