The road to Boarding Ring
How about the prehistory of Boarding Ring ? And so my vision, my interest in visual tracking and the path that led to the approach offered by Boarding Ring ?
An alternative view
As a child, I had watched a blind man walking forward, while his white cane never touched the ground or bumped into the sidewalk step to walk over it. It was kind of funny to think that an adult was playing the blind man's joke; he did it all the time, and I had found out, I knew his secret. It might annoy my mother, but I was delighted.
As a student, I sometimes accompanied visually impaired young people. But then again, there were a few of them who obviously spotted obstacles from a distance so as not to hit anything. So these blind people were obviously not joking, they had a perception of the environment, another view... Similarly, I used to walk to the university restaurant and read a folded newspaper. I walked along the sidewalk absorbed by the news, without ever hitting anyone. Would I have this facility too?
A stabilized view
In the 19th century the idea of blind vision was evoked, a paradoxical vision, it is true that in these terms it was a bit "bold". But in fact my idea of several visual activities with differentiated strategies that could coexist and collaborate, and even collaborate with other senses was going in that direction.
Several perceptual strategies allowed the sense of balance of the inner ear to be included in the stabilization of the gaze. From then on, working on visual pursuits, I proposed new perspectives on peripheral vision and eventually ended up to these glasses with levels. Boarding Glasses was born!
