Curated Inclusive Design: Wearables: Korean Startup, The Dot, Braille Smartwatch for the Visually Impaired
“Every time technology moves forward we see more real-time information, but for the blind, that’s a widening discrimination gap.”Eric Ju Yoon Kim is the developer of the world's first Braille watch. The watch lets blind people read real-time smartphone data in Braille. The Dot, a device that straps around the wrist like a watch, uses magnets and a grid of pins to create four braille characters at a time that change at adjustable speeds, allowing users to read text messages and use apps on any device via Bluetooth. The Dot uses a moveable braille interface made of magnets and pins strapped to the wrist like a watch.
