To help and lower their suffering, Anang Tadar, a 9th class student of New Galaxy Academy student has invented a special goggle that works on the principle of ‘echolocation’ used by bats, to navigate and find food in the dark.  

The device called ‘Goggle For Blind’ (G4B) detects objects in their surrounding without any physical contact. It works on the echolocation principle which uses sound waves and echoes to determine where objects are in space.
