A device called vOICe has been developed that translates visual images to “soundscapes”, which is helping blind people see things through sound. Michael Proulx said: “What's exciting to me is that not only can you use this device in a very deliberate fashion, but it is also possible, through extensive use, to go beyond that and actually have some sort of direct, qualitative experience that is similar to the vision they used to experience.” Reported in New Scientist.
