This is the world's first phone for people with impaired or lost vision.

This gadget differs from ordinary smartphones by its “screen”, which is a grid of contacts. It forms a tangible alphabet, and various contacts are responsible for certain letters or symbols. Thanks to this, the display is a kind of translator and can read plain text containing familiar letters into Braille and vice versa.

Indian scientists have developed a new technology based on the work of dot matrix printers, where letters were created from a large number of retractable elements. The screen of the new phone was similarly done, where the operating system controls the rise and fall of letters, forming a font from dots and lines for visually impaired users who can read messages.

The developers note that the main motivation for creating a smartphone for the blind was a simple desire to make technology accessible to everyone.
