For an interesting application of micro-volunteering see Be My Eyes; an app that has been developed to connect blind and visually impaired people with sighted volunteers from around the world via live video call.
How does it work?
A blind person requests assistance in the Be My Eyes app. The challenge that he/she needs help with can be anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk to navigating new surroundings.
The volunteer helper receives a notification for help and a live video connection is established. From the live video the volunteer can help the blind person by answering the question they need answered.
