World’s first Braille Smartphone invented in India

 

Blind people will soon be able to read SMS and emails on a smartphone as the world’s first smartphone for blind people has been invented in India. This innovative idea comes from Sumit Dagar, a graduate from the National Institute of Design (NID).

 

This smartphone converts all text into Braille patterns, allowing blind people to read texts, emails on the device. 

 

“This product is based on an innovative 'touch screen' which is capable of elevating and depressing the contents it receives to transform them into 'touchable' patterns," said source.

 

The phone’s screen has a grid of pins, which move up and down as per requirement. The grid has a Braille display, where pins come up to represent a character or letter. This screen will be capable of elevating and depressing the contents to form patterns in Braille. All other elements are like any other smartphone.

 

We plan to do more advanced versions of the phone in the future,” sumit added.
