Smart glasses find a very smart application in airports

The Port of Seattle  recently announced a new pilot programme  for Smart Glassses to help people who are blind or visually impaired access a new assistive technology to safely and independently use Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.  The glasses  connects people who are blind and low vision to certified, live agents via the smart glasses and a mobile app to navigate every step of the airport, from the curb and check-in area all the way to the gate.   The airport authority said it will cover the cost for any travellers using Aira smart glasses to navigate the airport.
