"Each motor is 10 mm diameter, 3 mm thick and 12 g weight. It is
commercially available for 10 USD.... The prototype’s laboratory cost
is only 200 USD."

I think we should become these people's suppliers!

Anyway, a very cool haptic device! A distance sensor on the front of
each shoe could be hugely useful for non-sighted navigation obstacle
avoidance, no?

Thanks for posting.
