Visually impaired skiers race with a sighted guide who travels a few meters ahead of them. They rely on verbal communication and have no means of independently gauging where objects are around them. Glimpse gives independence to Paralympic skiers and snowboarders by providing relative position awareness via multi-sensorial feedback, mixing bio-mimicry and new technology. Glimpse presents opportunities for new sports by creating a safe environment for multiple athletes competing on the same track. Our ambition is to enhance the experience for both the athletes and the public.
