Braille Smartwatch For The Visually Impaired
The Dot Watch is the first time braille has been put into motion and integrated into an electronic device. Dot Incorporation recently introduced the watch, making it the world’s first smartwatch for the visually impaired.
Designed to be inconspicuous, the watch uses a patented DOT Active Braille technology that reduces size, weight, and cost by more than ten times compared to existing technologies that rely on piezoelectricity. The Dot Watch is only the beginning of Dot Incorporation’s plans to bring new possibilities and benefits of the networked digital age to the blind and visually impaired. Retailing at $290 USD, the Dot Watch is available for pre-order at dotincorp.com
This new wave of technology opens the door to a more inclusive pool of consumers and creates an equal product base for everyone.
