And you thought the PowerGlove wasth cool. Well guesth again, thisth isth the nextht big thing.

*Ahem*, that is, the Florida Institute of Human and and Machine Cognition has developed an interface that stimulates the sensitive nerves of your tongue.

The system, which is getting shown off to Navy and Marine Corps divers next month will supposedly have sonar integration for sub-aqueous orientation, but has already apparently given some landlubber blind people the ability to catch balls, "notice" others walking in front of them, and find doors. With IR, radar, sonar, and other forms of detection, the researchers believe this device will obsolete night vision -- even our own eyes -- sooner than later.
