Trendy Braille Eyewear

The Braille Sight concept is simple and fashioned as trendy eyewear. The system captures images using the glasses frames (Frame of Sight) and then syncs it to the lenses (Braille Pad) as tactile images in Braille. The wearer can comfortably “see” their surroundings, in spite of being sight impaired. The only issue I can think about here, is the response that the tactile system has to the ever changing landscape. What do you say?

Braille Sight is a 2011 red dot design concept winner.

Designers: Seungwoo Kim & Harim Lee
