Eye stick

I admire designs that have a purpose in life. Especially ones that can be life altering such as this one. This is by a Korean designer (Wonjun Songg). The stick looks like the typical white and red one but it can recognize things like a step, traffic light, subway station, etc.. Upon recognizing such a thing, the stick sends a message to the person through vibrations that can be identified by the blind person holding it.. My only concern would be, does the person holding the stick have to practice learning what each vibration means? So would that mean that he/she have to be guided the first couple of times to learn them? Or can the whole process be achieved solely?
