Blind passengers miss something amazing in the flying experience: the view outside. However, a concept created by Ford gives some food for thought. Ford has devised Feel The View, a prototype smart car window that enables blind or partially-sighted people to visualize the passing scenery through touch. The system takes pictures, which are turned into high-contrast monochrome images and then reproduced on the window glass using special LEDs. By touching the image, different shades of gray vibrate with a range of 255 intensities, allowing passengers to touch the scene and rebuild in their mind the landscape in front of them.
