Blind Cap, is the first swimming cap provided with a vibration system and Bluetooth technology that, synchronized to Samsung Gear S2 or Galaxy S7, removes the touch signal used so far to alert blind swimmer at the exact moment of the turn.
Blind Cap is more than just a cap, it is a project in which Samsung wants to bring technology to elite athletes, allowing them to go a step further by improving the conditions of the sport in which they dedicate their lives to.
Through Bluetooth technology, the coach links the cap to Blind Cap App, designed for the Gear S2 and Galaxy S7 (match able with any Android display). So, he only will have to press the button on the App to send a vibratory signal to the swimmer, pointing out the exact moment of the turn.
**Way of telling the blind swimmers when to turn, poking them on their head or back with a stick with a sponge attached at its end.
Project development on process, system not yet available.
