The idea behind FingersightTM is that a miniature video camera and a tactile stimulator can be attached to individual fingertips and, in conjunction with computer-vision algorithms, enable people to interact with the visible world by moving their fingers. Individual fingers, or groups of fingers, can thus point at and “feel” visual features of the environment, allowing the operator to explore, interpret and remotely control it.
