Check Out The World’s First Braille Smartwatch And What It Can Do.

Life isn't the same for every individual that enters this world. Some encounter more challenges than others. But when a challenge is thrown at a person, they have to accept it and overcome it. Visually impaired people overcome the most difficult challenges as they learn how to walk in public using a cane and learn how to read and write using Braille language.

Because Braille language uses raised dots that are felt by the fingertips visually impaired people can't read any messages on a smartphone. The Dot has changed that as they've produced the very first Braille smartwatch that allows users to feel messages on screen!

In this world, there are over 285 million visually impaired people. But it appears things might finally be looking up a little bit!

Dot, a South Korean developer, has just invented the world's first Braille smartwatch! And it's the type of technology that you would expect from the innovative 21st century.

The watch uses 4 active dynamic Braille cells to display information. The users have the ability to select what speed they would prefer to have the characters update.

Just like any other smartwatch, the Dot connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone. The watch can then receive any text message from any app or service (Messenger, directions from Google Maps, etc.).

By using the buttons on the side of the watch, users also have the option to send their own simple messages out.
