I generally do not cover “concept” projects because I profoundly believe that all interactive prototypes should be made (and working to some degree). But this particular project, Thimble, a collaboration between Artefact and Industrial Design Department at the University of Washington, is quite provocative and certainly worth sharing with the FT community.
3D Model of Wearable Tech Prototype
Created by Erik Hedberg and Zack Bennet, Thimble is a wearable finger glove that gives the visually impaired access to ambient information. Watch the video narrative above to see how it is envisioned to work.
