Kuluk helps people in India with visual difficulties to call people, navigate their local area and get information through their mobile phones by using shaking and voice-to-text technology. 

Users can shake their phone to initiate call functions,  place it face down to end calls and load pre-selected texts through particular movement actions. The app is still in development but the developers hope it can be used for better interactions with smartphones by people with visual impairment.
