Braille iPad

The Omnifer is an innovative cover for the iPad that transforms it’s flat surface into Braille, reflecting the contents of the page you are surfing. Essentially the idea is to make the iPad accessible to the sight impaired. If supporting technology for this does come around, then I’m sure it will be quite a revolutionary concept to be commercialized. Nevertheless, when not in the Braille mode, the jacket acts as a protective gear for the iPad. Lovely!

The Omnifer is a 2011 IDEA Award entry.

Designer: Jayson D’Alessandro
