I am very interested in this innovation becoming a reality, and hope that this technology also encompasses Voice Output guidance. Currently individuals who are Blind combine the iPhone with VoiceOver and a refreshing Braille display, it would be excellent to have these features combined in one device, along with tactile images.

An article and video mention that it should be released by the end of 2013, for about $185.00; that is very comparable to cell phones now and much cheaper than an iPhone...it will be interesting to see this unfold, and what operating system it uses: http://mashable.com/2013/04/24/braille-smartphone/?goback=%2Egde_761737_member_236720736
