Stanford engineer's touchscreen Braille writer is now an app that turns an iPad into an invaluable tool for the visually impaired.

Three years ago, Sohan Dharmaraja was a Stanford engineering doctoral candidate in search of his next project when he visited the Stanford Office of Accessible Education, which helps blind and visually challenged students successfully navigate the world of higher education.

He was getting ready to become a mentor in a summer programming course for undergraduate students, an event organized by the Army High Performance Computing Research Center at Stanford.

National Science Foundation grant allows Stanford Engineering team to experiment with a way to combine online learning with hands-on experience.

Physical Touch in Virtual Classroom
Short Dek: 
Stanford team's Hapkit combines online learning with hands-on experience.

Stanford educators have designed a do-it-yourself kit that gives online learners hands-on experience by bringing haptics into virtual classrooms.

Haptics refers to the sense of touch. The hands-on teaching tool is called Hapkit.

Hapkit has a sensor, motor and controller board that can be programmed using a personal computer. Learners can program Hapkit to produce specific sensations. For instance a user should be able to touch the device and feel what it’s like to run his or her hand against a wall or click a ballpoint pen.

Device invented by David Lentink will answer questions about the forces birds generate while flying.

It's easy to look at a bird and deduce that it flies by flapping its wings, but understanding exactly how a bird generates lift has long eluded scientists.
