This stuff it totally awesome, they don't mention the name of the 
product but I bet it's the latest generation of "BrainPort" technology.

Skory had a project back in the early days of sensebridge to build a diy 
version:

He actually finished the prototype before he left and let several people 
including me try it.  I think it only had 4 electrodes, front back left 
and right?  Anyway, it was a pretty awesome experience, very easy to set 
the current too high and make it painful!  I was able to feel each 
electrode as a different place though, so it was totally proof of 
principle that a diy version can be made.
