Introducing: The Dot Braille Smartwatch For The Visually Impaired

Developed in Korea, the Dot is an amazingly new item (the greater part of the company’s site is as yet “coming soon” pages) that offers another interpretation of advising the time and offering notices to the outwardly disabled. Strikingly, in light of the fact that it utilizes braille and not only pointers to impersonate hands, the Dot can offer genuine rich notices, not simply numbers for the time.

On the wrist, the Dot wears like a more customary watch (if a marginally enormous one).

In terms of specs, the Dot is quite noteworthy. The case is made of aluminum to hold weight down (only 27 grams) and it gauges in at 43mm across and 12.5mm thick. So sure, it’s a major watch, yet it’s still especially in the domain of wearable. It comes with one of three diverse measured calfskin ties that works similar to a half-NATO, wrapping through on one side. It has a battery-powered battery, a touch sensor, a vibration engine, and Bluetooth, so it’s quite standard as far as smartwatch features. 

From the side, you can see the braille take shape.

The Dot works in a lovely direct way. Under the dial are four mechanized modules, each with six potential dots. Each dot can be raised or brought down independently, so the Dot can show up to four braille characters all at once. The wearer at that point simply peruses the dial as the person in question would a piece of paper with braille on it. The dial is sunken to offer a defensive edge around the braille modules themselves, making it simpler to wear the watch day in and day out.

The Dot is the primary watch to include mechanized braille.

You may recollect a couple of years prior we covered another watch intended for the outwardly impeded, the Eone Bradley . That watch utilized a bunch of magnetic circles to tell the time in a more customary design, with each ball addressing a hand. You contact the watch and read the time dependent on where the circles are comparable to the raised markers. The Dot is practically the computerized LED watch to the Bradley’s simple watch, with neither expecting you to see the dial to tell the time.
