Haptic Feedback device for the Visually Impaired [Project HALO] using arduino

I recently watched an episode of Stan Lee’s Superhumans which featured a blind man who used a series of clicks, like a bat, to echo locate his surroundings. I got to thinking about other blind people and their ability to navigate freely – without the use of a guide dog or cane. I came up with the idea to use a series of rangefinders that would take input from sensors and output feedback to pulse vibration m ...

How to Build a Robotic Hand with Haptic Feedback using Arduino

For science fair this year, I felt like building something instead of doing an experiment. All I needed to do was look around Instructables for a project idea. I was inspired by njkl44's robotic hand since it reminds me so much of stuff out of science fiction movies. My goal was to create a system of haptic feedback from a robotic hand like that. The system provides a way for the person controlling the hand ...
