Sensory substitution & extension

March 22 2015

A fascinating take on how our brain processes information and how this might allow us to create sensory relationships to abstract yet relevant information. A quick reflection is Davids less ‘on or off’ approach and tonality of our being as a machine and how he relates to emotion in his talk.

TED Excerpt.
“As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces — such as a sensory vest — to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.”
