An LED ring divides the main body, with black on the lower half and white on the upper half. A handle is attached to the main body by a white telescoping stem. The handle is a softened triangular shape and includes a speaker, microphone, and camera. The grip area is black rubber and includes a centered input button and left and right haptic feedback zones.

Walk Boldly. Glide Easy.

A groundbreaking leap in assistive technology, Glide combines cutting-edge navigational robotics and AI to provide you with an intuitive and comfortable guided experience.

Using real-time data from an array of advanced sensors, Glide autonomously steers the way. It maps the best routes, identifies targets of interest, and avoids obstacles to get you safely to your destination.

Easy to learn

Set your destination, and let Glide intelligently steer the way. Its intuitive design ensures a smooth and effortless experience, allowing you to focus on the journey, not the obstacles.

Stay in control

Gently push Glide forward at your own pace. Glide keeps you on a safe path, while providing real-time information about your surroundings, ensuring you stay aware and informed.

Light and versatile design

Crafted with an ergonomic handle and an elegant stem that gracefully approaches the ground to rest on two wheels, Glide boasts a light, versatile and elegant design, making a statement that complements your lifestyle.

We're with you, every step of the way.

Let Glide empower your movement.

Glide is not just another smart product; it’s a personal journey fueled by a passion for breaking barriers to independent mobility for those with sight loss.

When Glidance Founder and CEO Amos Miller lost his sight in his 20s due to a genetic eye condition, he refused to let it hold him back. As a product executive at Microsoft Research for more than 15 years and founder of Microsoft’s Soundscape navigation app, Amos has dedicated his career to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible through technology.

His approach is reflective of ours as a company; we lead with empathy, curiosity, inclusivity and a deep desire to help everyone with sight loss experience life in bold new ways.
