Eyecap' Project and Current Economic Challenges

This lunch-debate offers a "brand new" generation's view of the "future", and seeks to understand the new challenges posed by today's economic environment.

Through the Eyecap' project, two fascinating women will present their project: an ultra-connected swimming cap, packed with microtechnology and electronics, to help visually impaired people swim.

Invented as part of a Master's thesis at Geneva's Haute École de Gestion (HEG) in 2019, this cap equipped with intelligent sensors alerts visually impaired or blind people to obstacles.
(end of water line) autonomously by means of vibration signals and progressive sound.

A small revolution is in store for visually impaired or blind swimmers, giving them access to inclusive structures where the handicap is reduced.

A company was born from this project, and today we're looking at production, sales and marketing.
