Looking like a cousin of Nintendo's Wiimote, the Tactile Wand is actually a 'smart' wand designed to replace the traditional long stick used by the visually impaired. Created by Jin Woo Han, the Wand utilizes a sensor on the front to detect nearby objects and provides feedback about how far away they are with varying levels of vibration. The wand includes a tactile strip where you place your thumb that will actually indicate the position of objects around you.
