Mind Chair transmits moving imagery to the sitter’s brain via a grid of solenoids on the chair's back.

The grid of 400 solenoids take imagery from a video camera to produce impulse patterns on the sitter’s back, which the brain somehow (we don't quite get it) interprets back into imagery.

The design group Beta Tank, who had made a concept version of the chair for the MoMA's Design and the Elastic Mind exhibit, has since made a working version. According to Beta Tank, many research institutes have been researching this type of sensory exploration as a ways of bringing imagery to the blind.
