New smartwatch will turn your texts into braille

This incredible device is transforming the way visually impaired users utilise technology.

New smartwatch will turn your texts into braille

Engineers in South Korea have begun work on a device that will transform texts into braille.

The start-up company, called Dot, is seeking to fill a gap in the market that saw very few options for visually impaired smart phone users.

The device, similar to an apple watch, will use a series of magnets and pins that will have the ability to transform any messages received – into braille.

Whilst computers have had the ability to transmit words into braille for quite some time, this technology is expensive, with most programs starting at $3000.

Co-founder and CEO of Dot, Eric Ju Koon Kim, told Tech in Asia, that he was hoping to place the product on the market for less than $300.

The product will be available for purchase in the U.S this December.
