The visually impaired can 'hear' and feel the eclipse

Visually impaired people do not get the opportunity to see or understand many phenomena of nature. Scientists are working with various technologies for them. Scientists have developed a device that enables visually impaired people to hear and feel cosmic events like solar eclipses. A similar sound and touch sensing device will be used to view the solar eclipse next April.

Yuki Hatch, a school student from Austin, Texas, USA, said, 'Solar eclipses are very beautiful. Everyone should experience such an event once in a lifetime. I am visually impaired, and quite passionate about space. I want to work as a computer scientist in NASA. A small listening device called the LightSound Box has been developed for us. I will hear the eclipse instead of seeing it with the instrument.'
