Augmenting spatial awareness with Haptic Radar
We are developing a modular electronic device to allow users to perceive and respond simultaneously to multiple spatial information sources using haptic stimulus. Each module of this wearable “haptic radar” acts as an artificial hair capable of sensing obstacles, measuring their range and transducing this information as a vibro-tactile cue on the skin directly beneath the module. Our first prototype (a headband) provides the wearer with 360 degrees of spatial awareness thanks to invisible, insect-like antennas. During a proof-of-principle experi
