The first prototype of the BlindPAD as a full portable device is ready and tested at FIRR in Poland and Chiossone in Italy. In the video Prof. Herbert Shea from EPFL explains the BlindPAD.
At the World Haptics J.J Zarate, N. Besse, O. Gudozhnik, A. Ruch, H. Shea, demonstrated the “Portable pin array with 192 fast latching taxels”. Also an oral presentation was given about the portable pins. Many people tried out the demonstrator. A lighter version of the proto1, which was used at the first prototypes was presented at the World Haptics.
