Braille-iant!

Earlier this year we saw a test video with the possibility of touchscreens becoming more tactile. The screen had the ability to rise and form buttons that could be pressed. A group of designers saw how that tactile innovation could be used to help the visually impaired harness the power of improving technology.

The concept Entouch revolves around an exterior for your smartphone with a tactile-enabled touchscreen and a click button. Slip your phone into Entouch and it translates visual data from the camera into bumps, allowing you to get a rough outline of what your camera is capturing. This sort of thing could be big not just for photography, but also for any sort of visualization.

Designers: Won-kyoung Seo, Lee Kangkyung & Hye Ryung Lee.

  • Hey guys.! It’s wonderful to see your positive response! This design however, is conceptual.
    Do follow the designers on their Behance page. Maybe a message there would result in something fruitful!
