Touché– Refreshable Braille Display (RBD)
This device is a result of over 8 years of intense work and dedication of a host of people. This device will revolutionize the way literacy is looked at for the visually impaired. Some of the salient features of this device are; low cost, high reliability, easily serviceable, multiple means of connectivity, user-centric. Touché was developed as a product with the help and collaboration of Sapient Razorfish at their Kepler Lab. www.touche.world
Touché Plus– Refreshable Braille Display with integrated Braille keyboard (note taker). A work in progress…
This advanced version of the Touché refreshable Braille display will have an input device in the form of a Braille keyboard that will allow the user to input data and store data. This device will be an IO device which is pretty much a fully functional computer for the visually impaired.
A simple low cost invention that has ensured financial independence and freedom from fraud for the visually impaired. This template has been crowd funded on Fueladream with the aim of distributing it to over 2 million blind people in India. This is available free to any blind person in India. All we need is a request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with name, shipping address and quantity required, and we will ship them to you absolutely free!
Tactile Books for the visually impaired and sighted.
Children derive great fun out of story books, we have produced a couple of very interesting characters which will enthrall children with their amusing adventures. Also, these books are printed using technology which will make them equally enjoyable and accessible to visually impaired and sighted students alike. All illustrations have tactile features and texture variations that can be felt by the visually impaired. Not visible, but present in the illustration, is Braille text.
Touché Type – Low cost Brailler
We are working on a low cost Brailler which will make personalised typing out notes and books far more affordable and easier for the visually impaired. The Perkins Brailler has been around for over half a century and is probably the heaviest and most cumbersome device a Braille user can possess. It is also prohibitively expensive. We aim to substitute this device with a sleek, low cost, lightweight replacement. We will share further details at the earliest.
