Tis a morning for concepts it seems. This just makes a lot of logical sense to me and I’d like to see it happen. Designers Seon-Keun Park, Byung-Min Woo, sun-Hye Woo and Jin-Sun Park have come up with a Braille e-Book reader concept that uses an electroactive polymer to raise Braille dots on a screen when a charge is received.
This could be a real boon to those who need to use Braille to read as it would certainly more than cut down on the bulk of printed Braille texts and could potentially make more books available to those who are sight-impaired.
