Memo in Braille helps the visually impaired to make quick notes for themselves about daily things. The visually impaired read Braille by feeling sequences of raised dots. But in regular everyday life, they cannot use Braille to make quick notes. Memo in Braille is designed to help them do exactly that. It is a reusable notepad made of silicone with an array of concave-convex dots that the visually impaired can press to write notes for themselves in Braille. The asymmetrical shape and the different surfaces on each side of the memo pad show the users how to hold it the correct way around.
