You will be hearing more about our haptic glove technology shortly. By using our seeingaid technology along with a 3d image database we are building some powerful tools for the vision impaired and anyone that wants to reach out and touch something.

Contact us at info@seeingaid.com to learn more.

For those of you who have visited our National Parks you have experienced the reason thousands of acres have been set aside to preserve the grandeur at each park. One of many applications for our Haptic glove is to generate a virtual model of the mountains, waterfalls, geysers, and valleys that are in these parks and allow those that are blind to reach out and feel what many of us see. Effectively opening up the world for exploration by those with visual impairments. Our technology has been created to move with the blind individual and give them a virtual tactile map that stimulates positions on the hand to simulate the boundaries and texture of their surroundings. Whether it is a 20 story building, a museum, or one of our nations National Parks our glove will provide scalable touchable searchable terrain and structure data.

A small group of very talented engineers and visionaries have been hard at work making things and building applications that even the largest of companies' R&D firms fail to generate. If your company, University, or organization for the blind wants to help, simply email us to learn how. We understand all that could be done with our technology and are pursuing those avenues but it is helping the visually impaired that drove this technology and we need your help in that endeavor.

If you have a way with words or have visited our National Parks, please email us descriptive phrases and information about the scenes we have captured below. In addition to touch, we will be providing verbal definitions or braille sentences to better describe the scenes. If you have been to the Grand Canyon you will know how hard it will be to put that experience into words but please take a shot at it. We will acknowledge your submittal if you like and have others pick the best descriptions for each scene. Our goal would then be to convert the sentences to braille or voice readings. If you know information about a particular image below or feeling you got while at that location please include that in your email referencing the picture number and send to info@seeingaid.com.

We are also looking for those other great locations that may have audio features, or smells from gardens that you like to visit when you are at a Park. Some of the locations we have imaged are on paved walkways and others are off on rugged trails that you will have to be in good shape to reach. We would like to start taking the opinions from those that are blind. Should we allow home based access to all of our touch sensing 3D data or should we leave some of the detail to only those that get to a specific location within a park?

We continue to compile the images and audio files we captured from our trip. If you can think of a National Park or National Monument and a particular location at that park that would be a good match for our hands on technology please submit you images or locations to info@hapticglove.com , remember we are also looking for locations that stimulate other senses like the sound of the bats flying out of the cave opening at Carlsbad Caverns, or the sound and spray of Bridalveil falls (during the wet season) at Yosemite National Park.
