Although braille has been around for over a century, Jia Mengyin and Bao Haimo’s Blind Reader design for a lightweight, ultra-portable braille reader is literally putting unlimited reading power in the palms of the seeing impaired.

About the size of an iPhone, this Blind Reader would allow its users to translate any piece of text, in any language, into traditional braille bumps. The awesome thing about this reader is that unlike previous, clunky braille-on-the-go reading solutions, Mengyin and Haimo’s Blind Reader is capable of being quickly applied to any surface via the ease of a device that fits in your pocket.

Even though the implications for this type of technology are really quite limitless, Mengyin and Haimo’s nifty braille reader shows the tech-savvy, friendly future of where accessibility for the disabled is heading.
