How it works

Clipped from: EYE CANDY

Each of your senses (touch, smell, sight, taste, hearing) sends information to the brain at a different frequency. The brain determines where the sensorial information it receives comes from by the frequency at which it resonates, it can then process it in the appropriate way (e.g. turn sight information from the eyes into pictures in the mind). An array of resonators positioned on the surface of an Eye Candy transmit information from the tongue to the brain at the frequency that the eyes usually send visual information to the brain. A pleasant sensation of soda bubbles can be felt on the tongue as the mind decodes this sensorial information as vivid pictures.

This process is called sensory substitution and can be used to supplement peoples senses, enabling them to see the evocative images contained within Eye Candy.

Sensory Substitution

Clipped from: Sensory substitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sensory substitution means to transform the characteristics of one sensory modality into stimuli of another sensory modality. It is hoped that sensory substitution systems can help handicapped people by restoring their ability to perceive a certain defective sensory modality by using sensory information from a functioning sensory modality. A sensory substitution system consists of three parts: a sensor, a coupling system, and a stimulator. The sensor records stimuli and gives them to a coupling system which interprets these signals and transmits them to a stimulator. Sensory substitution concerns human perception and the plasticity of the human brain; and therefore, allows us to study these aspects of neuroscience more through neuroimaging.

Scientists Rewire the Brain through the Tongue

Vision Device

The BrainPort vision device is a non-surgical assistive visual prosthetic device that translates information from a digital video camera to your tongue, through gentle electrical stimulation.


The current prototype works best for individuals who are blind and have no better than light perception.

The BrainPort technology maniuplates the brain's sensory input and can allow the blind to see. See more BrainPort images.

Welcome to TCNL, founded January, 2008. Our mission is
to develop solutions for sensory and neurological disorders by applying
principles of neuroplasticity, enabling the brain to process information
in new ways.
