Tracking The Hands To Unlock Secrets Of The Mind

Exhibit Code: GOR-0440
Zone: Recreation Zone
Location: Gordon Field House and Activities Center (GOR/024) - Main Floor
Time: All Day
Age Group:

If a blind person were suddenly able to see, would they recognize objects that they had previously only been able to feel? The answer may come from "haptic tracking" - analyzing the movement of hands as they manipulate an object. Students in the Center for Imaging Science's Freshman Imaging Project have built a system which does just that. Visitors will have their own hands tracked, and will learn how this cutting-edge device is opening exciting new windows on the inner workings of the mind.
