Debby presented her light emitting white canes at the Embassy of Health at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven at the Waag stand. The responses were positive. Everyone thinks these canes should have been around for a long time!
The design process is also going very fast by now with all those contributions from Hogeschool Rotterdam and other schools.
Due to cheap copyers, factories do not invest in making industrial designs with all the certification that is needed to bring (renewed) aids to the market.
So Debby starts to raise to funds again to have the design made with all certification, to offer the Open Source Design with al the required certifications to all producers on behalf of all backers. After all, we need the good Lightupcanes. The sooner the better!
