Blind People Will Now Be Able To Feel Messages With The World's First Braille Smartwatch

Publish date:

South Korean developer Dot has produced the world’s first Braille smartwatch, and its features are out of this world. "The Dot" uses 4 active dynamic Braille cells, and its users can select the speed at which the characters update. It can receive any text from any app or service, and also send messages using its buttons on the side of the device.

The Dot connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth (just like any other smartwatch), and has an Open API so anyone can develop new apps for it. Dot will finally start delivering its devices to some 140,000, of which one of them is Stevie Wonder, in March 2017.
