Tactsenze

Developing Tactile Stimulation for Music - and Beyond

Our start-up, Tactsenze has produced a prototype which allows visually impaired musicians to interpret a conductor’s hand movements. Wu Jing, a blind flautist made history by playing with the Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with the aid of Tactsenze technology. The key here is that she did not play as a soloist, but as an integrated member of the orchestra.

Ric Wasserman, project manager, will demonstrate our prototype and present some ideas for further developing the technique.  Our goal, is to develop a tactile-based communication tool for the visually impaired and deaf-blind community.
