BAND DOT / Smart Band


As an effort for the blind, Braille can be found in everyday life, but not everything is marked with Braille, and the marked Braille is also damaged over time, making it less readable. I thought of BAND DOT to solve these difficulties. BAND DOT recognizes letters through scanners and converts them into braille. When letters are recognized, the dots are express in braille as they protrude to fit the recognized letters. The scanner's move is freely. So you can read long texts comfortably. The position of the scanner is fixed when the fixing pin is inserted. A silicon slap band can be worn comfortably regardless of wrist size.
