Open Source Sensory Substitution Device
The "Unfolding Space" project deals with sensory substitution. A phenomenon by which the function of one missing or faulty sensory modality is replaced (substituted) by stimulating another one. The outcome is a prototype that is projecting the 3D picture, generated by a special camera, as vibration patterns on the back of the hand.
The blind can therefore use their tactile modality of the hand to actually see.
