Even with an object in plain sight and in close proximity, there is a lot more in front of us than meets our eye. By observing an object using our sense of touch, we are able to gather an entirely different set of observable data about the object - in particular, the 3D form and detail of the object that would be entirely unavailable to sight-only observation.
