Mind Chair on Next 5. Arhus
Next 5. is an exhibition and trendshop in Arhus, Danmark organized by Innovation Lab. Kitchen Budapest presented 3 projects in the exhibition.
One of the the several exciting projects exhibited was the chair of Beta Tank, which has a special input interface using a camera and a light box. This special device is attached to an enhanced grid of 400 solenoids installed in the back of the Mind Chair. People are able to sit in the chair, close their eyes and concentrate on the images which are vibrated into their backs by the solenoids. The builders of the "Mindchair" think this chair can even help the blind to "see" shapes.
