The Miniguide uses ultrasonic echo-location to detect objects in its vicinity, vibrating based on the distance to objects—the faster the vibration, the closer the object. A headphone jack can be used to provide sound feedback. The Miniguide supplements the information provided by a guide dog or cane—an interesting alternative for visually impaired or blind users.
The Miniguide is not to be used as a primary aid.
