Product DescriptionThe BuzzClip 2nd Generation Mobility Guide is a wonderfully small and helpful tool for assisting those who are Blind or have very low vision and utilize a mobility (Blind) cane or a guide dog. Its hinged clip easily clips to the user's clothing and vibrates with increasing intensity as an object appears within detection range of the BuzzClip.
The angle of detection is a conical shape from the center of the sensor (mesh within circular ring). This new 2nd Generation BuzzClip now has three ranges of detection: a 1-meter mode (3.29 feet), a 2-meter (6.6 feet) mode and a 3-meter (9.85 feet) mode. and it can be used either indoors or outdoors. Within its 6 foot horizontal range, it can detect objects within 3 feet (1.5 meter) vertically from the BuzzClip, generally covering from the waist to the head, when the Buzzclip is clipped to a shirt lapel.
It will stop vibrating after 5-7 seconds of no movement, allowing the user to stand and talk to friends without vibrations. This is a perfect traveling companion for getting around town or even around a friend's or even your own house.
Now one can even hold the BuzzClip - 2nd Generation in your hand, much as you would a flashlight. Simply flip up the mesh grilled proximity sensor a little past the 90-degree angle and point it in the direction of travel. This technique is best used while the BuzzClip is set to the 3 meter mode.
The included rechargeable battery lasts approximately 10 hours on a charge. Recharge the BuzzClip with the included charger attached to the micro-usb port on the main body of the BuzzClip. A full charging of the BuzzClip should take less than one hour.
