What technologies did David develop?


David Eagleman developed a technology involving a vest with vibratory motors designed for deaf individuals. This vest captures sound and converts it into patterns of vibration on the skin, mirroring the frequency range that the inner ear processes. This allows people to 'hear' through their skin. Eagleman's research demonstrates that the brain can adapt to receive and interpret information via unconventional sensory inputs by making correlations with other senses 1.

Creating New Senses

David Eagleman discusses the possibility of creating new senses for humans and how the brain can adapt to receive information through unconventional means, such as vibrations on the skin. He explains how the brain can make correlations with other senses to interpret and understand new sensory inputs.
