Hi everyone,

I came across this article today about a new app (for iPhone currently)
that allows non-sighted users "vision" through crowd sourcing and personal
video streaming.

This app has some interesting features such as a reputation system based on
points.

This is applicable to Prosperity for All and may be worth investigating and
discussing.
