Brand experience agency Geometry Prague and NeuroDigital, in collaboration with the Leontinka Foundation, has made art more accessible to the blind with an immersive VR experience using VR haptic glove technology.
Three of the world’s most iconic sculptural masterpieces – Michelangelo’s David, Venus de Milo and the bust of Nefertiti – have been transformed into virtual objects which people can “see” through haptic glove technology for the very first time. The art experience is housed at the Touching Masterpieces exhibition, staged by Geometry at the National Gallery of Prague.
The haptic gloves control realistic hands in virtual space. When the virtual hand touches a 3D object in the virtual world, the technology identifies the object and sends feedback in the form of vibrations. The Avatar VR glove has been customized specifically for “Touching Masterpieces” and are enriched with multi-frequency technology able to stimulate different types of skin cells’ tactile responses – to provide the blind with the most accurate perception of the 3D virtual object.
