Touching Iconic Sculptures with Virtual Reality Haptic Gloves

Read about the first virtual reality (VR) experience for the blind and visually impaired people - not with a headset, but with a pair of gloves. Haptic gloves create vibrations on different parts of the user's hand and make this experience of 'touching sculpture' (one of the examples is the famous ancient Greek sculpture the 'Venus de Milo') possible at The National Gallery of Prague.
