Creation of a haptic computer technology which enables blind and visually impaired museum visitors to 'touch'
3-D scans of museum artefacts. The objects have been digitised and are presented with multimedia information support.
The "Probos unit" offers the chance to have a tactile experience of museum objects through fingertip discovery. The system features high-quality 3-D scans and offers additional multimedia information and the possibility to zoom in or out. It is possible to feel details on the surface and to differentiate materials from the sound they make.
