New braille smart phone?

This is super cool.

As I was surfing through the Internet last night I came across an article on MSN that talks about a new braille smart phone that is being developed in India. Basically pins on the phone raise and lower to form braille words for the visually impaired.

From the way I am understanding it you can use the camera on the phone to pick up words off of a piece of paper and turn them to braille on the phone as well.

This phone is a perfect example of how technology is helping the world all the time. It wasn’t until after I read this article that I realized blind people have been using apps on smart phones for quite sometime now such as a money reader that tells them the difference between a $1 and $10 bill.

With a smartphone like this it opens businesses up to and entire new target market
