“We see with our brains, not with our eyes,” artist and technologist Aisen Caro Chacin said at Gigaom’s Roadmap conference Tuesday, paraphrasing neuroscientist Paul Bach-y-Rita.
Chacin explored that idea in her master’s thesis, developing four prototypes that help users perceive information without using screens. Here are two of the concepts she showed the audience at Roadmap:
Play-a-Grill: An MP3 player that plays music through your teeth, using the concept of bone conduction.
“Your teeth are embedded in your jaw and your jaw is so close to your inner ear that it vibrates your cochlea to the frequency of sound,” Chacin explained. “Your hearing nerve doesn’t care whether [sound] is coming from your eardrum or your teeth.”
Scent Rhythm: A watch that tells time through scent, based on the circadian rhythm.
