Breakthrough Invention Converts Texts And Emails Into Braille

It has been almost 200 years since the systematic language of Braille was first invented. The blind and visually impaired people have a very difficult in today’s world, since most of the modern age is familiar with technological advances.

Seeing that there was no such thing as the “Braille Ipad”, some University of Washington students set out to invent one.

Their invention is being called the Dot Watch, which turns text messages into braille for the blind. The Dot Watch will be making its debut in 2017, and it is being hailed as the first innovative advancement for the visually impaired in 15 years.
