---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a compact vacuum cleaner for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The Vivacuum is a compact cleaner for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The appliance's name is a combination of the words "visualize" and "vacuum." The sensors in the vacuum perceive an object and then transmit that perception to the user via vibrations in the handle. The strength of the vibrations reflects the size of the object(s). One can choose the suction direction by rotating a steel-wheel on the vacuum's handle. The wheel has Braille markings. TITLE: Vivacuum Varooomm!. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
