Samsung creates Touchable Ink for braille printouts
October 6, 2016
Until now, laser printers could not print braille while other printers were too expensive.
Samsung took the help of the Thailand Association for the Blind and a chemistry professor to make the Touchable Ink.
The ink is put in a laser printer and a braille printout is taken. A hair dryer or microwave are used to heat the printed page. The ink then rises and becomes raised in dots.
Tests are being done and it is hoped that the ink will work on all laser printers.
