【一场特殊的艺术展,盲人终于可以欣赏大卫的美】

【一场特殊的艺术展,盲人终于可以欣赏大卫的美】上周,The Touching Masterpieces展览在布拉格国家美术馆首次亮相。这场艺术展帮助盲人和视障人士扔掉沉重的头戴耳机,用特殊材质的手套触摸感知虚拟现实中的艺术品。该展览为参观者提供了一系列著名雕像的3D模型,他们可以通过手套的触觉反馈来“观赏”不同作品。同时我们也可以看到,这项技术在盲人学校的应用能够为孩子未来的教育带来多少惊喜。

VR exhibit allows the blind to ‘see’ art thanks to special gloves

 

Forget massive headsets. An art exhibit in Prague is helping blind and visually impaired users to touch artwork in virtual reality thanks to special gloves.

The Touching Masterpieces exhibit offers visitors a series of 3D models of famous statues to “view” via haptic feedback in the gloves. The exhibit debuted last week at the National Gallery of Prague, where several users were allowed to test it:

The project began with the work of Neurodigital Technologies, a Spanish VR startup working in tandem with the Leontinka Foundation for the blind and visually impaired, Geometry Prague, and the National Gallery. Neurodigital began development on its gloves in 2015, with a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Barbara Hucková, executive director with the Leontinka Foundation, says the haptic feedback provides users a glimpse of art that’s never previously existed:

Blind children are usually taught in school with relief aids and tactile pictures that far from accurately reflect reality. This new technology is an incredible breakthrough allowing pupils to touch what was absolutely unattainable before.

 

So far, Touching Masterpieces has modeled three pieces of historical art: the bust of Nefertiti, Venus de Milo, and Michelangelo’s David. According to a spokesperson with Geometry Prague, the three statues were chosen for their artistic merit and because the human forms are recognizable for users who might otherwise be thrown by the new experience.

The haptic gloves are sensitive enough to show the difference between various kinds of materials. Those who use them will be able to tell if the artwork is smooth, rough, or textured. Some of the fine details may be lost, but a spokesperson for Geometry says it is still refining the tech.
