Tactile Page Printers

There are plenty of concepts and prototypes out there that can bring Braille printers to the general public, but the Sim Cheong Printer & Scanner goes a step further to make all flat sheets of writing readable to people who are visually impaired.

This cutting-edge device is compact and clever. Its expandable shape can be adjusted to accommodate a page of any reasonable width. You simply feed the paper through the slot of the machine and the device reads the content of the document. Next, you’ll see Kyung-ho Jang’s invention spit out an embossed sheet with an exact alphabetic translation produced in Braille.

The Sim Cheong Printer & Scanner would be an invaluable addition to the desktop of anyone suffering from blindness. It would also be quite useful at the reception of community centers and set up in most institutions.
