Summary
  • An electronic cane beeps when close to objects. Sounds emitted allow blind people to form an image of the shapes of objects. It's done using different pitches, melodies and volumes. The plasticity of the brain continues to amaze. The visual cortex can change the inputs which allow vision to occur. Even if born blind, the visual cortex can be trained to create an image, based on sound, allowing a blind person to perceive the space around them.
