Out of 285million visually impaired people, 95% cannot read.Dot
The clean and simple design, similar to the bracelets Fitbit , Dot consists of mobile points that rise and fall to outline various signs of the alphabet to form combinations of four characters to Braille. It’s also possible, according to the user’s ability to read, adjust the speed of the device. The whole is supported by a battery capable of providing a range of 10 hours.
The preorders Dot should begin in the fall and the price of the device would be around $300 (compared to $2000 cost of many Braille devices already on the market).
The first units of the smartwatch Braille should be delivered for the month of December.
In my spare time I write for my art blog called Martineken and I keep pursuing my interest by doing graphic concepts and mock-ups.
