These college students could be onto something big.

Five students from China have developed a smart helmet that could aid the visually impaired in their everyday activities.

Called the "Eye See", the laser-equipped helmet is capable of detecting obstacles, as well as identifying text and describing people you meet.

The helmet is equipped with a camera and laser radar, which allows it to detect obstacles within a distance of about 10 feet (3 meters), and will emit a warning sound when the wearer gets too close to a barrier.
