Ford is giving the blind a chance to "see" what's outside the car window.

The new "smart windows" take a picture and then convert the image into vibrations that are displayed on the glass. That allows the passenger to feel it and mentally picture the view. There is even an image-recognition system that tells them what's outside the car.

Engineers say it's kind of like Braille.
