A group of students from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have developed a device called BraillEye that convert texts and numerals into Braille.
BraillEye is a portable and affordable device that will be launched at a three-day Think Science Fair in Dubai this week.
The BraillEye device was developed to help a student named Saifldden Taqatqa who is blind. He was also a part of the team behind the device. Taqatqa used to find certain daily tasks difficult. The device was created to help him.
The device is likely to benefit blind students in a big way. Though it is costly, the students are looking at ways to make to affordable to the common man.
