Perspective is one of those experiential things that sighted people seem to "just get." When you use technology such as the vOICe, or tactile graphics, things are a little harder since you are still learning how to see. If you don’t fancy using video glasses or don’t want to walk around to experience perspective, checkout the below link. It has pictures of frosted grass taken from various distances that get progressively closer. Try comparing the close ups with what you see using the zoom feature of the vOICe.

Hi Pranav.. The RASPBERRY- PI which is a very tiny ARM processor board, is now available very cheaply ($25).
I am told that this will run Android if spoken to nicely.
So,what about ditching the weight and heat and cables of your backpack PC, and the expense and fiddliness of your phone… and having the whole vOICe under your hat?
Maybe keep the phone in hand for communication/GPS/location.
The Raspberry-pi forum is buzzing with very clever guys with advanced ideas, what is needed is the right approach to hook one of these wizards. The Raspberry-pi has its own camera (non USB) option and USB interface.
What do you think of this for a scheme? Can you help ? john p.

Hi John, That is an idea and I can certainly get on to the forums and ask around.
