  • Learning Morse Code without Trying

    New study demonstrates silent, eyes-free text entry

    Researchers have developed a system that teaches people Morse code within four hours using a series of vibrations felt near the ear

    Researchers have developed a system that teaches people Morse code within four hours using a series of vibrations felt near the ear. Participants wearing Google Glass learned it without paying attention to the signals —they played games while feeling the taps and hearing the corresponding letters. After those few hours, they were 94 percent accurate keying a sentence that included every letter of the alphabet and 98 percent accurate writing codes for every letter.
