3D Printed Braille Phones Debut in UK Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, May 20, 2014, 11:47 PM

3D Printing technology can now help blind people with braille phones.

According to the Voice of Russia, "The visually impaired may now exchange phone calls, thanks to the just released first of its kind Braille phone, constructed using 3D printing techniques by London-based firm OwnFone."

Braille phones are easy-to-use for the visually impaired.

As reported by the Voice of Russia, "For those who can't read Braille, the company promises to print raised whatever text it may be on the keypad. The phone, currently only available in the UK, sells for £60 and according to its inventor Tom Sunderland, 3D printing the front and back of the gadget helped to minimize the costs."

Nevertheless, customers can choose from a wide color selection of phones.
