Gel type writing utensil for the blind

Current writing utensil for braille point lacks portability and only allows its users to apply it on the back of the paper to make it readable. The DOT PEN, however, is more portable, as it has integrated slate and stylus into a form of a pen. Plus, the DOT PEN utilizes gel, which dries once exposed to the air, thereby allowing its users to write out on the frontpage of the paper.
