Textura, a phone for the blind made of special material

February 21, 2017

People with visual impairments cannot easily use smartphones. It is difficult for them to work with these surfaces, and voice prompts are not always accurate.

Designer Isa Velarde has designed a phone that offers a possible way out as it works best with people who suffer vision problems.

Called Textura, it has a Braille surface that makes it easy to use through touch. Textura has a working touch screen but sight is not needed to use it.

There are movable pins that move throughout the phone, creating messages in braille or shaping into an icon. Users can input and send messages as well as receive them.

The phone also has headphone jacks so information can be listened to. Textura is a beautiful phone that can prove to be very useful.
