Could whiskers help the blind to see ?

7 posts in this topic

Rats use their whiskers to help sense the world around them - could the same thing work for humans ?

I'd rather be blind than look like a furry. :P

Some blind people use echolocation to navigate, so why not some adaptive device that mimics the function of whiskers? Come to think of it, doesn't the cane so many blind people use serve a similar purpose?

It doesn't work for men. I've got whiskers, I closed my eyes and walked into the wall.
