A braille printer, explained best as the equivalent of a traditional printer, but for the visually impaired. The target audience ranges from low vision to completely blind. The idea behind the printer's asymmetric shape is that it will show the user which two sides to use. In order to increase the usage, the surfaces are of various materials, textures and colors. The feature with the glass is that different light signals can be used on the inside to indicate the printer's current state for the visually impaired. It also uses speech feedback to indicate status. The printer has no moving parts on the outside that could mislead or harm the user.
