A research group in Brighton is looking for healthy participants to test technology that allows the blind to see using a form of echolocation. The device effectively converts video in to sound waves in real time allowing the individual to form an image in their mind of what is around them. Check out their site here! There’s a fascinating explanation of how it works as well as some jaw dropping youtube videos. Damn, I’m so gutted I’m not in Brighton right now.
