The glove that makes sounds through touch
A student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has created a glove that allows you to hear the sounds of objects through touch.
He calls it the "FingerSynth" and it is made up of a number of finger rings that are connected to a box on your wrist.
Each finger ring contains a small, independently controlled exciter transducer commonly used for auditory bone conduction.
The rings sound loudly when they touch a hard object, and are practically silent otherwise.
BBC Click spoke to the inventor of the "FingerSynth", Gershon Dublon, on a recent visit to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus.
