Meet DOT, the first active braille smartwatch

August 12, 2015 / no comments, on Wearable Blog

A team of young university students created the first ever braille smartwatch for visually impaired people. The watch features an e-braille display, which can tell various information for it’s owner. The official website states, that 95% of the 285 million visually impaired people can not read, as the braille technology is not available for the masses. An e-braille reader can cost as much as $2000 and only 1% of the books are translated  to braille. They claim, that the watch will be affordable, with the estimated retailer price being $300. The watch will be able to present messages, tweets, e-books and could also help with navigation. It will be available in stores and online retailers later this year. For more information, head over to the official DOT website.
