Where can I learn more about an implant that lets me feel the distance to objects?


Wikipedia briefly mentions this concept, and I want to learn more.

“Magnetic implants can also be used as an interface for portable devices to create other new "senses", for example converting other sensory inputs such as ultrasonic or infra-red into a touch sensation. In this way the individual could 'feel' e.g. the distance to objects.[3]“


  • You should look up the bottlenose. It is an external device you wear next to an implanted magnet that converts a stimulus to electromagnetic fields that your finger can detect with the magnet.
