Free Information For The Blind And Visually Impaired
Global Tactile — A Brief History
In this introduction, we will explore the history, science, technology, art, and accessibility of Global Tactile’s free information resources for individuals who are blind and visually impaired. It is paramount to ensure equal access to information and knowledge for everyone, regardless of their visual abilities.
During the latter part of the 20th century, I embarked on a self-taught journey in the field of electronics, developing my skills as a young child. Being granted complete access to our family’s hardware business, I acquired the necessary knowledge to effectively operate a business.
As the new millennium began, I immersed myself in assimilating the information required to advance cybernetics to its state-of-the-art level. My main focus revolved around cognitive and computational neuroscience, with the aim of bridging the gap between the human visual system, perception, and action—with a focus on navigation and accessibility. Simultaneously engaging in rigorous academic pursuits such as performing international and federally-funded primary research, writing scholarly journal articles, attending vision conferences, and teaching cognitive sciences at esteemed state universities, I endeavored to design the Neo-Luna Navigation & Game System.
Driven by my vision, and with the help of my Esteemed Colleagues, I crafted a NEI/NIH SBIR Grant Proposal with the objective of creating and offering the Neo-Luna Navigation & Game System to the American populace. Today, Global Tactile takes pride in providing the following free information resources aimed at benefiting the blind and visually impaired community.
Free Offerings — by Global Tactile
Global Tactile, LLC collaborated with the National Eye Institute of the National Institutes of Health and Apple Inc. to develop the Luna Navigator and the Neo Controller. The Luna Navigator is a fast human-machine software app, and the Neo Controller is an advanced force-feedback controller. The Neo Controller incorporates a unique Tactile Reticle Technology that provides extremely fast and sensitive feedback control — 180 times more bandwidth — compared to Luna’s traditional vibration-based navigation. This incredible increase in bandwidth allows superior navigation precision and speed in the absence of visual feedback.
You can learn more about this technology through Global Tactile’s offerings, which are Free for Blind and Visually-Impaired Americans. The Information, Courses, and the Neo-Luna Navigation & Game Metasystem itself is now Available Free to Blind and Low-Vision American Individuals. Read on to learn the details about this generous offering, exclusively from Global Tactile.
