Braille Tech:

Isn’t technology great,  especially when we can use it to enhance the lives of people’s well-being?  Riding on the tails of the smart watch trend, the South Korean company Fingers On has invented a wearable for the visually impaired.  It’s called Dot and here’s how it works: A message is sent to the wearer’s smartphone.  The text will then be translated into Braille and forwarded to the Dot.  The receiver is then notified through vibration.  Once he or she places their fingers on the face of the gadget, 24 separate pins will rise and fall to deliver the message.  Fingers On is hoping to launch by this upcoming December and is working on keeping prices under $300.
