Hello, Scott, and hopefully a good New Year.scottpete wrote: ↑Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:46 pmHi, all. Sorry for nosing in on this conversation. I started on pages 1 and 2 then skipped to the end and have a lot of catching up to do. I am very excited to read what has been going on over the course of time. Here is my background:
I am an ophthalmologist in the US who treats retinal diseases and have a significant proportion of my patient base with visual impairment.
Discussing technology solutions for low vision was often frustrating due to the high cost of, in my opinion, primitive CC TV-type devices being >$1000-$2500 US. For elderly patients with fixed incomes this is a non-starter. Researching online has led me here and I have now a few pi3 with camera modules to begin prototyping, but progress has been slow. I have also just started to learn coding (I am admittedly a dilettante and novice). My goal is to create devices with a price point of $50-100. much in line with what is going on here. As a newbie my abilities are severely limited, but growing. I am following this thread to try to keep up with this very robust discussion for the benefit of my patients and friends. Thank you all for your expertise and work - hopefully I can be a contributing member to the discussion in the future as my experience allows. Thanks!
