Heat Dot

People in the fast-growing modern world lead a smart lifestyle. Also, they see lots of information overflowing endlessly. However, the visually impaired are far from gaining information from texts, and thus find it hard to live up to the fast-growing modern lifestyle. Also, many visually impaired individuals cannot read Braille due to the paucity of Braille books. Usually worn on the wrist like a watch, it is placed on either paper or machines when reading.Rather than sensing surface for dots of ordinary braille books, this reads braille with the heat at the end of fingertips.
