NearSighted -VR Augmented Aid

Help fund version 2.0

Are you legally blind? Do you have low vision or can only see things up close ? Then this app might be for you. NearSight is an application that works with your phone and the OpenDive VR display or any DIY VR displays. It uses the camera on your phone and displays the front image to the phone screen in stereoscopic. We feel that with time we can develop more devices and/or applications which will help people with visual or eye disabilities.

What you need for the App:
1. An Android phone
2. A head mount display compatible with a phone screen

Start up the app and it's good to go. Tap the center of the screen to bring up the touch screen menu or use a Bluetooth controller to zoom and adjust the display.

This is neat I'm not near sighted and I doubt this would help much if I was, but it still felt neat to be walking around my apartment with this on. Kind of felt like I was in a dream.

Ethan Gohl

Boo! If this is supposed to be like glasses it stinks

Zoom Too Pixelated Not sure if it can be fixed but the zoom is too pixelated compared to the normal camera zoom. Good ideas though!

Tawney Williams

Love this app for visually impaired person I am visually impaired and cannot wait to use this app during meetings and speeches. I miss a lot especially people's expressions. This app does help but I would love to see more zoom features

Connie Terry

It has potential, but it didn't really help. It would be great if we could use volume buttons to zoom in and out.

Sagar Aryal

Great idea .. Need improvements 5⭐ for the idea. Few bugs I found: - screen stays on even if the app is in background - camera does not turn off when the display is turned off ( noticed the laser AF in Nexus 6p is still flashing). -the zoom buttons did not work on my phone. + you guys can implement a way to be able to change settings with the display mounted on: like most vr apps.

My friend has macular degeneration and I turned him on to your app. He was comparing this to the very expensive optical device that acts similar. This is incredible thing you have done here. Can you make the digital zoom go up to 16x? This application could change a lot of people's lives for the better. I hope you can accomodate thanks! (phones be used are a s6 and s7)

For some useful There's not enough zoom, only 4x. Wheres update to zoom with volume buttons? App would be more useful with this function and more zoom, color schemes (yellow on black, white on black etc) nice idea needs improvement.

Иван Копылов

Oldham Mayumi

Thanks Thanks this app helped me so much.

Brilliant Add a dimmer/brightness control and perhaps some sort of black & white/color toggle with some contrast control, there too, and I think this app will be the new way to correct vision - once the wearable tech catches up and slims down, which it's rapidly doing now. Please consider these additions. 5 star app, once they're included. - I had been trying to find someone to collaborate with on this very concept for some time now. Also - take advantage of laser/range sensors to integrate gesture controlled zoom?

Anastasia Graham

Weird I'm not sure why this would help...but it was fun and silly to try once. It feels like being in a game.

Poor resolution I've installed this on my Galaxy S7 and found it to be awful resolution, can't read anything using it as it's all blocky and bad. I tried a VR camera app and the resolution on that is amazing so I'm not sure why this doesn't work... I zoomed out all the way and it's still poor

Grosserly Lyric

Not what I expected I was expecting an app that would make other VR apps less blurry for nearsighted folks, but it actually is an app to help those who are nearsighted see in real life by letting them see through their phone's camera. I have no doubts that this app would help with that problem, as long as the phone's display is 4K. Anything below that and the image would look pixelated. Uninstalled anyway because the app was not what I was looking for.
