In a country like India, where there is absolutely no infrastructure for physically disabled, this news brings the fresh air of change and hope. A start-up, Kriyate Design Solutions, based in India has successfully created World’s first Braille smart phone for blind people. This phone converts all text in to Braille pattern and thus allow the blind people to read SMSes and emails. Sumit Dagar, the innovator of this smartphone claims, “This product is based on an innovative ‘touch screen’ which is capable of elevating and depressing the contents it receives to transform them into ‘touchable’ patterns“. The working of the phone was explained by Times of India as: The phone uses Shape Memory Alloy technology, based on the concept that metals remember their original shapes, i.e. expand and contract to its original shape after use. The phone’s ‘screen’ has a grid of pins, which move up and down as per requirement. The grid has a Braille display, where pins come up to represent a character or letter. This screen will be capable of elevating and depressing the contents to form patterns in Braille. All other elements are like any other smartphone.
