First ever Braille smartwatch

Browse By

South Korean company, Dot, has produced the world’s first Braille smartwatch, and it is remarkable. The watch has four cells, each consisting of tiny mobile components, and offers features such as call answering, text messaging and Google Maps navigation. It can also connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, thus allowing visually impaired individuals to read and respond to messages they receive.

In addition to this, the watch allows visually impaired individuals to interact on social media as it can be integrated with mobile applications on many smartphone models and operating systems. Bonus points could be awarded for its sleek stylish design and affordability and what’s more is that Dot declares the product an open source data compilation, allowing independent techies out there to legally develop ways to improve both the hardware and software.
