Cydalion assists people with a variety of visual impairments to navigate their world. In Greek mythology, Cedalion stood on the shoulders of the temporarily blind hunter, Orion, to guide him. The Cydalion app bears his namesake, relying on the unique capabilities of Tango to provide vital tools to improve people’s quality of life.
The Cydalion application works best when you use it with a lanyard or vest, headphones, and a Tango device. Our recommendations for these items are below. Are you interested in creating compatible products to assist users? Contact us
