Persuasive Intent
The DolphinView headset is a device that simulates echolocation, the navigation tactics used by Dophins to find prey. The DolphinView pulses in the jaw - using what's called bone conducting headphones - when objects get closer to the wearer. Small motors send vibrations on top of the jaw and to your inner ear and brain. With practice one can begin recognize clicks, and feel the object surrounding you.
