Brainovi offers 3D Braille GPS navigation system

If you’re visually impaired, then getting around with a GPS navigation device might not be the best thing to do unless you trust its voice turn-by-turn instructions (and on foot, to boot). Well, the Brainovi is unique as this concept will rely on a combination of spoken directions that will be relayed over a Bluetooth wireless earpiece, where a physical 3D map will be created on the pin matrix surface of the Brainovi. As a user, you can then enter your destination verbally, and the Brainovi will automatically go around calculating its route. We just hope that for pedestrian use, the Brainovi will be updated since visually impaired people would most probably be holding a cane in one hand to “feel” their way around.
