Braille by Hand

I’m sure you recollect seeing Braille staplers and dispensers here on YD. What we have today is the Braille Tape; I think it’s the simplest and most functional of them all. It’s just a sticky tape with parallel dots that you can hand punch to write a Braille message. Label bottles or mark out the danger zone, do it in a jiffy.

    It’s a fascinating concept, but I’m not sure of the practicality and durability compared to handheld braille labelers such as this one. http://canadialog.com/en/handheld-braille-labeler

    It’s also unclear to me that the designers have thought through the adhesion and compression of rolled tape and how that might reasonably cause many of the bubbles to collapse in transit.

    Still, lovely idea for occasional labeling if the practical problems could be resolved.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I see a problem akin to the addictiveness of bubble wrap — once you start punching the little bumps, you can’t stop.

    Would you not be better off modifying a label maker? then you can have the best of both worlds

    I dig. A lot.

    excellent and useful idea, congratulations. Sure there ´d be things to change but this is a wonderful begining.

  • The idea is so good, but me too have doubt about the possibility of compress inadvertently the dots.

    The simplicity of the idea is amazing, even if the practicality of it is in question.

    Love it!!!
    How can we buy it!!

    I would add magnetic tape to the back so the kids could re-use it.
