We do know that there has been advances made to accommodate the blind when it comes to the world of smartphones, but those efforts are simply inadequate when you talk about it being implemented across a large scale. Here is a concept that we would love to see turn into reality – the ultimate Braille phone, known as the DrawBraille. This particular concept design places a heavy emphasis and focus on letting the visually impaired use a phone as though it was second nature to them. This is made possible because the whole user interface as well as input keys are in Braille, and to streamline things further, the touch panel also reflects a similar system. It goes without saying that while the blind do not really need a drop dead gorgeous handset, it is still nice to see designer Shikun Sun go all the way with his effort on this concept to make it look delicious enough for a normal person to pick this up – heck, it can even be a catalyst to pick up Braille for some of us who identify with the language!
