The Thimble is a Braille finger glove multimedia concept from designer Erik Hedberg and Zach Bennet. The finger glove utilize iPhone integration via Bluetooth that pipes the connection to the internet that could deliver news and current locations all translated to the blind user using Braille messages. There’s also an optical scanner at the glove fingertip that could read the paper text and translate it into Braille message. Know how the concept works after the break.
We find the concept really great, however we’re looking of same concept via a Bluetooth headset instead of translating everything via Braille, it’s much easy for them to recognize voice translation.
