The Wonkook Lee Snail reader is a tiny technological gadget that has the potential to revolutionize reading for the blind!

The Wonkook Lee Snail is a small rolling wheel device which is pressure-activated to read braille. The rolling wheel’s pressure-sensitive surface is triggered by the shape of the braille bumps, which then triggers the Snail’s speakers to voice the text to the reader. The reader has the option of listening to the text out loud or in private through their Bluetooth headset. There is also a recording button on the side of the Snail allowing readers to record and listen to their text at a later time.

Reading braille without the Wonkook Lee Snail is much less efficient. This profound product is a genius design and will no doubt improve the lives of many.
