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.
