Braille iPhone

Louis Braille who, in 1824, when he was just 15, devised the six-dot reading technology that is the standard method of reading and writing for blind people to this very day. Now almost 200 years later, thanks to brand new touch screen Braille, blind users may now be able to use iPhones. The tactile flat screen, invented by researchers from Tampere University in Finland, emits electrical pulses that feel the same as Braille to fingertips. This software, which can also work with laptop and palmtop computers as well as phones, heralds a new era for Braille and promises to revolutionize communications for blind people.
