Visually challenged individuals are one of the most concerned people in the society in terms of independence and confidence. There is a class of needy blind people who are not able to afford the technical devices designed for them.  A personalized smart device designed using deep learning technologies will be of greater help to them. A brief discussion was made with them to make the design of this device more user specific. Requirements gathered from this meeting are processed using deep learning methods and are composed into a smart glass using Raspberry pi. This glass is customized for every user such that it detects presence of known people around them and also does priority specific object detection. The compact, stand alone and economically efficient design of this product is welcomed by the needy blind people with great enthusiasm. This product will thus effectively increase their morale and ability to roam outdoors notably.
