Universal Phone caters to sighted and blind

We’ve seen phones that catered to the blind in the past (mostly concepts) while the majority of handsets out there are meant for the sighted, so how does this Universal Phone differ? Well, it is more than capable of handling both blind and sighted folks, thanks to thousands of micro pins that are dynamically raised and lowered to form a tactile surface so that the blind can always read incoming text messages in Braille. As for sighted folks, this surface can be used to experience tactile feedback that normally do not come with touchscreen handsets. Would be interesting to see who will be the first manufacturer to release such a handset in the future.
