A marathon runner with a guide accessible only through technology
A black and white photo showing only the silhouettes and shadows of runners on a dark streetFor many of us, running the Boston Marathon would be challenge enough, but for Erich Manser, he is adding to the challenge. He is visually impaired and running with the aid of a remote assistant who will be based 3,000 miles away. He will be wearing the AIra glasses and testing the ability of the technology, and the human who will be guiding him with the technology.

Erich has run 16 marathons in the past, but this will be his first attempt with his current level of low vision without anyone right beside him to guide him during the race.
