Camera For The Blind, Not As Ridiculous As It Sounds

This news does seem a bit crazy when you hear about it, but once you read the details it actually sounds neat.

The Touch Sight camera, designed by Chueh Lee at Samsung, is a camera that takes pictures for the blind. The back of the camera has a flexible Braille display that will reproduce the picture in 3D, allowing the blind photographer to touch the photo. The camera also takes 3 seconds of the surrounding area’s sound and stores it with each photo so that their will be an auditory reference for managing the photos.

Users will be able to upload their photos to other Touch Sight owners who will be able to download the photos to their camera. The camera isn’t on the market yet but it will be interesting to see if it does make it to stores in the near future.
