New device helps blind people 'see' with their tongues!

(NBC) -

A new device may help people who are blind "see" by using their tongues!

The FDA has cleared the way for a company to market the BrainPort v100.

It's a device that's worn like glasses, but with a video camera mounted on top and a sensor that touches the user's tongue.

The camera converts images into vibrations on the tongue. People can sense the location and size of objects by learning what different vibrations mean.
