An International Tactile Exposition for Braille & Graphics for Children and Youth was held April 5-7th in Stockholm. Tactsenze had a stand where we displayed our new tactile communication device. Though we’re in the prototype stage, we’re moving forward toward a product for market. We had a great response, as many visually impaired participants tested our prototype, gasping ”wow”. Beside laughing as they were lightly tickled on their foot by the technique, those who tested the device provided valuable feedback. At the same time a number of textile communication researchers and their institutions came up to establish contact.
