AR Porn For The Blind And Disabled

I had never really considered how out of reach porn for the blind and disabled is. Like many other things in life, watching porn is probably something I’ve taken for granted. To be honest, I barely remember the days before the internet was over-run with a near endless selection of free adult movies. To me, it’s always been something that’s on demand whenever I please, with really little care in the world. A few clicks, a quick browse everything I could ask for is at my fingertips. Simple, right? Sadly, this is where the issue of porn for the blind and disabled comes in.

The Here and Now

Two years ago, Pornhub introduced their ‘Described’ category which included scripted voiceover for some of their scenes. This at least put experiencing porn for the blind and visually impaired in the right direction. However far from anything worth getting excited about. The site later on began introducing customized color contrasts and enlarged text. Again, it’s a step forward. But I’m sure it didn’t create stampedes of blind people stumbling around trying to find their laptop in an effort to hunt the so-called ‘described cat’.

In the same year, we saw the first virtual reality porn videos being released. Those who can’t have a sex life could now still enjoy the immersion of having a sexy girl up close and personal. Anybody with restricted movement of the hands who struggle to use a keyword could enter theatre mode and easily stream vr porn. In addition, sex toy start-ups are partnering with porno studios to develop synchronized experiences. This will make it easier for the physically disabled to masturbate.

Technology is changing the way porn for the blind and disabled can be experienced. However, things can be greatly improved. That’s where AR Porn is going to come in to play.

The Blind And Visually Impaired

Accessing the internet is a challenge for those with limited eyesight. Text-to-speech programs can in many cases be unreliable. Using a keyboard or mouse may prove difficult or even impossible. The most basic tasks such as browsing social media or watching Youtube are deemed out of reach. Then raises the question, how do blind people watch porn? Well, they don’t. Not in the way you or I do at least. However, and this is where things get really quite interesting and a daunting reminder on how far technology has come in just the last few years. AR porn for the blind could well be a reality in the future.

OxSight Smart Specs

AR start-up ‘OxSight’ have created a unique pair of augmented reality glasses that make the world visible for the blind and visually impaired. Dr. Stephen Hicks of Oxford University launched the company after he ran some research. Hicks explained that the brain is still trying to process visual information. The eyes only need to pick up specific and identifiable parts and the occipital and parietal lobes will make sense of it. Going by his observations, he teamed up with fellow scientists in 2016 and developed what they refer to as, ‘OxSight smart specs for the visually impaired’.

Nvidia GPU’s power the OxSight smart specs while built in cameras plus computer vision algorithms to process the visual imagery. The information then overlays the lenses in real time. As a result. It aids with tunnel vision; color contrasts can be emphasised. They enhance clarity, make faces recognizable and blurriness can be made clear for particular objects. People who have trailed the specs describe them as life-changing. Oxsight are currently still demonstrating their prototype across the globe and an official release date hasn’t yet been announced. However, it is expected they will available later this year.

As you can see from the video, the blind won’t exactly be partaking in 5k Ultra HD AR porn just yet. However, the technology is a promising hope for those longing for visually enjoyable experiences.

People With Disabilities

The issues faced with virtual reality porn, for those with limited or restricted movement in particular, is fitting the headset. AR porn for the disabled is different because augmented reality doesn’t require you to exit from your environment. disabled,paralyzed,man,wheelchairYou can wear AR glasses all day, while keeping in touch with your everyday surroundings. Companies such as Vuzix and Intel are making augmented reality glasses designed to be practical and comfortable for everyday use. They are lightweight and really quite appealing. The appearance is similar to your average pair of specs, rather than the bulky designs of VR headsets.

Eye Tracking and Voice Control

Eye-tracking tech will become a standard feature in AR. Apple, Google and Facebook are some of the biggest forces in augmented reality and all three of them have acquired eye-tracking companies. Hands free and voice assisted technology will gain in popularity. As a matter of fact. During CES 2018, Google had on display 350 voice-controlled devices. They also made predictions that voice control will dominate our homes in the future.

There’s no doubt about it, commanding a system through speech has proved hugely popular. Studies show that Voice assisted products save time. Amazon’s biggest selling item over the festive holidays was Alexa after they reportedly sold tens of millions around the globe. Just imagine how beneficial it could be for the paralyzed who just want to enjoy a cheeky porno scene? For both the disabled and visually impaired, this kind of technology will transform lives in unimaginable ways.
