The “Mind Chair” is a tactile interface for visual information –

Designers Beta Tank have developed a working version of Mind Chair, a chair that transmits moving imagery to the sitter’s brain via a grid of solenoids on the chair back.

The solenoids take imagery from a video camera to produce impulse patterns on the sitter’s back, which the brain interprets back into imagery.

Using the broad area of a person’s back for communicating large amounts of tactile information makes sense, perhaps the devices next iteration will be a bit more ‘nerf’-like? – Mind Chair by Beta Tank [via BBGadgets]
