The viSparsh belt developed by Young India Fellows Rolly Seth, Jatin Sharma and Tushar Chugh in New Delhi with guidance by Rahul Mangharam of the University of Pennsylvania, is a computer vision assisted haptic feedback system that uses a Microsoft Kinect to detect objects near the wearer and notifies them through an array of vibration motors across the belt.
