Hand Map Gives Eyesight to the Blind

What do you do when you're trying to navigate your way through a dark space? When our eyes fail us, we turn to our hands, to get a feel for our environment and to "see' with our minds. I know, like Daredevil, it's the first thing I thought of too. But seriously; imagine the possibilities if you could expand on this to truly help and empower the blind. Too late, someone beat you to it!
It is on the hand that a person who is without sight depends. Not always, but in our modern world, quite often. The hand is one of the most sensitive places on the body, and with this sensitivity, designer Calin Giubega has created a hand map that allows people without sight to “see” with movement and a form of radar. Inside the map that attaches to the hand, there are spheres that create symbols and gestures that tell the user what’s coming up in their path. See the unseeable.
