Foresight Augmented Reality (FAR) hosted the first annual ‘Eye on Accessibility’ event in Decatur Square on September 10, 2017. The event was held to raise awareness and celebrate the City of Decatur’s adoption of the FAR system in the city’s buildings, including the Police Station, City Hall and area Rec Centers.
Despite an impending hurricane and high winds, the event was well attended by participants eager to learn more about the new system.
Demonstrations and information were provided by FAR and other industry groups,
- GA Blind Sports
- Atlanta Eclipse Beep Baseball
- GA Radio Reading Service (GARRS)
- GA Vocation Rehab Agency
- Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI)
- Morgan County Vision Support Group
- National Federation of the Blind – Georgia Chapter

- And more…
The event featured fun for the whole family and a raffle benefiting the Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI). Raffle winners were able to walk away with incredible prizes, including signed jerseys from Atlanta Hawks Mike Muscala and Atlanta Falcon Morten Andersen.
