Tacit Haptic Glove for the Visually-Impaired

This is very cool (h/t technabob).

Project Tacit: Sonar For The Blind from Grathio Labs on Vimeo.

Bonus points, it’s Arduino-based and CC-BY-NC licensed. Steve Hoefer (@grathio) even provides the code, schematics and parts list.

This is the type of innovation I’m expecting will rise out of the Android ADK, announced at Google IO this year. Ben Heck has already hacked together a baby-rocker for your car seat that mimics the movements of a car (h/t Lifehacker).

Maybe our resident maker, Noel (@noelportugal), who is familiar with Arduino (Christmas lights, Halloween candy dispenser), has ideas brewing.
