​Dots - Braille Interpreter concept deisgn
 
There are people called “second-class citizen” - the olds, the disabled, the poor and so forth - in our society.
Compared with ordinary people, they are treated discrimnatingly and neglected.
Altough there is a welfare policy, social treatment is insufficient.
Thus I suggest a device based on digital technology to accept them as members of society and communicate each other.
 
Why is this needed?
 -  Blind people  read braille through a tactile sensation or hear recorded books.  They depend  on these completely.
 -  The braille is very important thing for them. But every blindness can’t read braille. If they lose   their eyesight by some accident or    
    their senses weaken, they have difficulty in reading braille.
 -  In this case,  they can be weed out  from a society.
 
  Thus, the purpose of this project is developing  and designing some device  to help them read braille.
 
Focusing
 - Easy interface : Designed that it has the minimum function and operater. because blind people and’t use
                               sophisticated device.
 - Easy to sense : Designed that it uses a familiar basic method that they read braille using index finger.
 - Comportable : Designed that it makes blind people feel comportable, when blind people wear it. Because it
                              is suck tightly on skin.
 
 
Dots is a wearable device that makes blind people who can’t read braille understand it. Blindness can sense it by using tactile sense of index finger. Interpreting module embeded in the wrist device translates the data from tactile sensor, Bluetooth module transpers the voice to the earphone.
