Tech Craic: Sara McCracken - Angel Eyes NI and virtual reality

  • This week journalist Niamh Campbell spoke with Sara McCracken, founder of Belfast charity Angel Eyes NI.

    It has been awarded a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund for its new, digital VisualEyes project, which incorporates the use of a virtual reality (VR) headset to simulate eye conditions to families, so the impact of sight loss is better understood.

    Sara discusses the tech and the innovations behind it and Angel Eyes in general. 

    The podcast is also available here on Spotify and on iTunes/Apple Podcasts when you search Sync NI, along with all previous episodes. Make sure to subscribe/follow for updates on new episodes also!
