What is a "tactile image"?
A tactile image harnesses the senses of touch, sound, and smell to help the blind and visually impaired community experience visual knowledge in a meaningful way.
Having worked extensively with the blind community, our patented technology allows the visually impaired to create accurate mental pictures of visual imagery without the need for a sighted companion.
