Description

SEEDIFF is a ‘neuro-ICT–art’ project that will enhance human sensory experiences through developing and applying a new generation of mobile “display” solutions to induce alternative channelling of stimuli that expand or enhance senses. Two products, an affordable haptic display and an innovative 3-D spectral display, target three distinct outcomes to enable “seeing” by the blind/partially-sighted, improved discernment for the color blind, and augmented perception for the sighted. Transforming visual content of natural and man-made scenes, including masterpieces of art, into perceivable tactile-auditory realm will result in innovative experiences and a foundational step toward augmenting digital inclusion for those with visual dysfunction. The vision of the project is enhanced experiences of cultural and civilizational achievements, such as visual arts, augmented and enriched communication, and increased educational opportunities.
