Writing Braille Anywhere…

The problem with writing Braille is that you need the proper equipments, namely a Braille Board and writer, which can get quite bulky to carry around. This means writing jiffy memos or taking short notes is not an easy task for the blind! The Braille Stapler looks at resolving the issue by providing a handy instrument that can be pocketed and used anywhere. This six-button device includes a space button and functions tab for controlling the size of the Braille. Moreover the design expedites the “writing process” that need not be written/read in reverse. More power of communication for the blind!

Designers: Dongwon Jang, Mihyang Park & Jungmin Bae

    If i might suggest a few things:
    the buttons seem a bit small, and, for me, look uncomfortable to use for longer periods of time.
    Also, the paper. It could use an automatic/semi-automatic paper feed for the device. Perhaps it could also automatically roll it into a nice roll after printing?

    Umm.. typing this way means you have to keep pressing buttons for each letter right.. one letter is made up of a possible six dots. So how long will your roll of paper need to be in order to spell out a word, a sentence or even a paragraph? The design of it looks beautiful but one of those voice recording thingies that journalists use would surely be more practical?
