RINBLE / Ring-like Braille Typing Board


RINBLE is a Braille board designed as a ring, with a front built-in camera and an image sensor system to sense the shape of words and convert them into Braille words and display them on the back Braille board of the ring. It can also download weather reports or news wirelessly through Wi-Fi.
How do visually impaired people record their lives? Users can record words or scenes they like by simply using RINBLE to take a picture and transmit the data from the ring to the Home-used Braille board via USB. This board has a built-in recording system to record audio to assist users managing the files. RINBLE enables the Blind to easily record lives.
