Haptic Ring


Haptic ring is a wearable device that is used by people who are blind or have low vision. It provides electro-vibration feedback on different locations of users' fingers. Its primary use is to extend the user interaction with touch screens in which haptic feedback is restricted due to battery consumptions. 

In this project you will work on improving the haptic ring by investigating design improvements that will allow the device to provide more accurate feedback. We will provide support for the design and programming components of the project.
