Pathfinder App will show you the way
Pathfinder is an app (presumably for the iPhone) designed by David Sweeny. It is meant to act as a way-finding application for visually impaired people. It has the ability to convey information to the user visually, aurally and haptically. The app acts as a user interface to the information cloud that surrounds public spaces. David says that this tool features a set of intelligent filters that allow only the most relevant way-finding and content information pass through. Each user initially sets their preferences of where their preferred information originates and how they would prefer that information to be conveyed to them.
