For the visually impaired, it is nice to see that there is no shortage of innovations for which sight is required.

Largely through the use of Braille and sounds, these trends for the visually impaired include functional items such as books and time pieces, cosmetic items such as neck ties and tattoos, and some other miscellaneous ideas including avatars and even Braille pornography.

Implications - It is nice to see that braille is becoming an every day sighting within society. Some of the unique braille things that are featured include graffiti braille, which is written in big letters on a wall outdoors. Braille has even inspired some architects to create some very innovative buildings.
