The Omnifer iPad Accessory is a conceptual device created by Jayson D’Alessandro designed to let the blind enjoy the iPad. The device fits over the iPad like a case and translates the text onscreen into braille.
The cover splits the iPad's screen in half, covering one side with braille. The braille dots are activated using a special app that translates the text on the page. When not being used to translate text into braille, the Omnifer iPad Accessory also doubles as a case. D'Alessandro has designed an innovative and incredibly helpful piece of tech that Apple or other tech companies would be wise to check out. This device could give the blind the chance to enjoy the latest and most high-tech gadget on the market today. It would also open up a previously closed off market which would help Apple further stretch its lead over the competition.
