wow, this is amazing, technology has no limits, so exciting to see all that is to be done still, and how this will help close the gap for blind people....
Thanks for sharing, sorry I can not help with description, english is not my first language and it gets hard to find words. Hope someone does....

The video in the link below is not described.
I think a set of hundreds of small motors can take information from a scanner or 
digital data and reproduce the shape of an object.

It seems that it would be a fast way to produce a tactile graph or 3D 
presentation of an image. I am not sure of the detail in the reproduced object.  
Perhaps a sighted list member can help with some descriptions.
