Vibrating wristband

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates tries on a vibrating wristband that is part of a system designed to help the blind and visually impaired navigate. The setup was developed by a team of Brazilian college students, including Ivan Cordeiro Cardim, center, and Carlos Eduardo Montiero Rodrigues, seen on the far right.
