        The project features a high definition pair of video glasses connected to a real time video feed from a small and discreet camera mounted to the top center of the glasses. The video signal is transmitted in to a micro computer mounted in a small box with a lightweight battery pack that has a belt clip to be comfortably worn around your waist. The micro computer will allow control of zoom and contrast for optimized viewing.

        The intention of the glasses is to assist those with impaired vision to selectively see items that they previously could not. I hope to be able to add an HDMI input to directly connect your TV to the glasses for improved viewing.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is obtaining the highest quality video image without sacrificing size, weight, or power consumption.
Another challenge is writing the software code so that the video camera communicates seamlessly with the glasses and the software can manipulate the zoom and contrast.
