An input device allows blind people to send text messages on cellphones.

Dutch designer Guuste Hilte has developed a prototype device that would allow the visually impaired to type and send text messages on mobile phones. The Tactile Texting is an input device in the form of a white case that contains small indentations which enables users to feel and hit the appropriate keys using only their sense of touch. The signal is then communicated wirelessly to their mobile phones.
