Moreover, we will demo VibroVision, a vest for blind users that renders the visual scene in front of the user with a 2D vibration image on the torso. We will also present a poster about Grabrics a fabric input controller. These works are the collaboration between Chat and his colleagues at RWTH Aachen University.
