Introduction
During my studies in Integrated Design at Köln International School of Design I highly specialized in interaction design and in researching the human sensory-cognitive system. These interests converged in my BA "Unfolding Space" – an low budget, open source and experimental sensory substitution system for the blind. In my MA program I will continues working on this project.

This paper documents the design, implementation and evaluation of the Unfolding Space Glove – an open source sensory substitution device. It transmits the relative position and distance of nearby objects as vibratory stimuli to the back of the hand and thus enables blind people to haptically explore the depth of their surrounding space, assisting w...
Thesis
Full-text available
As this is my bachelor thesis the paper is only available in German - sorry for that. This project deals with the phenomenon of sensory substitution by which the function of one missing or faulty sensory modality is replaced (substituted) by stimulating another one. During the thesis a device has been developed, which aims to enable the blind to...
Thesis
Full-text available
This is the theoretical part of my bachelor thesis. The paper is only available in German. In this paper – so called "proposal" – the phenomenon of Sensory Plasticity is researched as a basis to develop a Sensory Substitution device in the later published final thesis.
