Abstract:

Wicab, Inc. has developed novel technology which allows information from external devices to be sensed by humans via neuro-stimulation of the tongue. This report summarizes a multi-year effort to empirically measure the electro-stimulation properties of the tongue, including spatial and temporal discrimination, contrast sensitivity, and stimulation optimization approaches.
