The difficulties that users with allergies and dietary restrictions face as a cause of their dining experience being inconvenient and unsafe, make them feel as if they are a burden to the people around them, left out of social situations, and only have the option to eat food that they cook at home.
People who are visually impaired struggle to quickly adapt to vast and drastic environmental changes that disturb their mental maps.
Facilitate the independence of individuals who are visually impaired in public environments.
Develop an adaptive solution that evolves with the users needs throughout new and changing experiences.
