Blind Lollipop

“An electric lollipop that allows the blind to ’see’ using their tongue has been developed by scientists.

The extraordinary device converts images captured by a tiny camera into a series of electrical tingles, which can be felt on the tongue.

Nerves then send these messages to the brain, which turn the tingles back into pictures.”

Here’s a video of the technology in action:
