Over the years, the technology has contributed a lot to the people who live with any disability. In the case of the visually impaired, computers equipped with systems that guide users through the talks served to facilitate the use of the machine. However, some points still did not receive a lot of evolution.

The clocks, for example, tend to be obstacles to people who can’t see. With that in mind, the South Korean company Dot developed the first intelligent clock for the visually impaired. The device, called “The Dot”, has 24 pin display able to design four characters in Braille at a single time. The update speed can be controlled by the user himself.

According to the company, the strong point for the creation of the mechanism is the accessibility, as only 1% of existing books is translated into Braille, and digital books in Braille readers cost over $2000. The Dot will be more accessible, that is, around $300. In addition to providing the hours, the watch will also help users who can’t read in Braille.

The clock works even as alarm and messaging application, GPS navigation and Bluetooth connectivity 4.0. The battery autonomy of 5 days, inform the constructmaterials.

The Smart Watch has the ability to play messages in Braille, the shorter, but also longer. Now you will be able to read even one book.
