Conclusions

With further research, the wearable, tetherless, computer-mediated reality apparatus (WearCam) will hopefully be of assistance to the visually handicapped, as well as those suffering from visual amnesia. These two applications were presented in the form of a personal visual assistant (spatial visual filter) and a visual memory prosthetic (temporal visual filter). The former reconfigures vision through a completely mediated reality, while the latter reconfigures vision through a partially mediated reality.
