See With Your Tongue

from the technology-helping-the-blind dept

Some scientists are working on a device that goes on a person’s tongue and gives them tingling “fizzy” sensations to help them figure out where to go in the dark. They’re hoping it might be a useful tool for the blind. It sounds pretty funky. It’s definitely a long way off though. I just wonder what happens if someone swallows the device.
