TitleDot Go “object interaction” app
BriefFor blind and visually impaired people, it’s challenging to enter unfamiliar environments. Objection detection apps can identify objects but fail when it comes to interacting with these objects in a meaningful way.Dot Go is the first object interaction app, which means that it not only detects objects in the environment but also connects them to actions. These actions could be internal actions like sounds and vibration, or external actions in apps, websites, and smart home devices.For example: A bus stop sign could trigger open the public transportation app to buy the right ticket.Anyone can customize these connections and share them with the community. Dot Go serves as an inclusive accessibility toolkit. In 2021, Dot Go received funding from Inter-American Development Bank with WheelTheWorld. The app is available for free download from the App Store and is currently being used by thousands of users, businesses, brands, and organizations.

Philosophy Dot Go, the first app that connects objects to actions, has launched in the App store. The innovative platform created by Serviceplan Innovation and Dot Incorporation and developed by Hyperinteractive for blind and visually impaired people, is now available worldwide on the App Store and can be downloaded for free on the latest iPhones and iPads. Serviceplan Innovation has found a solution to this problem. Dot Go is the first ever “object interaction” app. Unlike existing apps, it not only detects objects in the environment but also connects them to actions. These actions can be executed automatically and range from internal actions like sounds and vibration; to, most importantly, external actions in other apps, websites, and even smart home devices. Besides the novel concept of “object interaction”, the innovative nature of Dot Go relies on another key component. Existing object detection apps all rely on proprietary object libraries and closed systems, designed for fixed use cases rather than increasing user needs. This leads to fragmentation and makes solutions increasingly expensive, forcing users to choose between adaptability and their individual needs. Dot Go is already being used by thousands of blind users, businesses, brands and organizations around the world. One such partnership is with U.S. start-up Wheel the World, who provide accessible tourism experiences. Funded with 140,000 USD by the Inter-American Development Bank, Dot Go and ‘Wheel The World’ created trips for the blind in Chile in spring 2022. The experience was rated highly by the participants, captured in a film documentary, and will be expanded to more countries later this year.
