Stedio is a gimbal camera designed for people with low vision who are often excluded from filming methods that rely solely on visual elements. In a world where people communicate through exchanging videos captured by habitually holding up cameras, the majority of people with low vision are left out. The entire process of setting up the angle, pressing the button, and monitoring the shot relies solely on vision, making it impossible to try without an assistant. However, everyone should be able to communicate freely through media. Stedio proposes new usability by adding tactile and auditory experiences to cameras. Stedio consists of a simple controller, a mobile app that provides voiceover feedback, and a gimbal camera that automatically controls the angle. When users select the desired angle mode with the controller, it provides clear UI and voiceover feedback, and the camera automatically sets the angle. It supports various angle modes so that users can capture the desired scene, even when alone. The UI and controller designed to consider various visual impairments are also clear. With its delicate design, Stedio provides an environment where low vision people can participate in the creative process and overcome the constraints when using a camera.
