Today’s 360 VR Buzz: ‘Touching Masterpieces’ VR Exhibit Allows Visually Impaired To ‘See’ Art

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

A joint venture between NeuroDigitalGeometry Prague, the Leontinka Foundation and the National Gallery of Prague, Touching Masterpieces is an experimental VR exhibit allowing the visually impaired to “see” famous works of art for the first-time. By using UV unwraps and re-topology to modify 3D laser scans of three famous sculptures: Michelangelo’s DavidVenus de Milo and the bust of Nefertiti, developers were able to eventually codify the shadows made by various features such as the hips, lips, eyes, etc and translate that new information into specific vibration patterns. The result is a real tactile experience bursting with detailed textures. Using NeuroDigital’s proprietary Avatar VR haptic gloves, visitors are then able to feel each minor feature on the art via detailed vibrations. With up to 1,024different varieties of vibration patterns available in just these three VR pieces alone, the brain is easily able to develop a genuine sense of touch throughout the experience. This allows those suffering from bad eyesight to finally “see” these beautiful creations through a series of realistic, tactile sensations.
