Designer Zhenwei You’s B-Touch cell phone would give blind users the same kind of multifunctional versatility that the iPhone enjoys. Instead of a glossy touchscreen, the B-Touch instead has a Braille interface that’ll allow sightless navigation through the phones proposed features, including voice recognition and speech, a simple navigation system, and a scanner that can read text from a page as well as recognize objects.
As with the many other Braille-enabled devices we’ve seen, the B-Touch is sadly just a concept, but you have to wonder how far off this kind of technology really is.
