Touch Sight: A Camera For the Blind

Touch Sight: A Camera For the Blind

  • 13 august 2008

This is one of the most interesting and amazing inventions we’ve seen in a while. The Touch Sight ‘camera’ is a way for blind people to capture memories of a moment. Instead of grabbing an image, the Touch Sight records sound for three seconds after pressing the shutter button. A malleable 3D braille display also renders an embossed image so users can feel the photo. These sense-photos can be saved on the camera for playback and can be downloaded by other Touch Sight devices.
