BLITAB – A Tablet For Blind People

2-Blitab

From BLITAB’s site –

BLITAB is the world’s first tactile tablet for blind and visually impaired people. It is like an e-book, which instead of using a screen, displays small physical bubbles. They rise and fall on demand, as a result, one entire page can be read, or written via a Braille Perkins Keyboard. For the first time, readers can have an overview of an entire document.

They are currently accepting pre-orders. Go to BLITAB’s site.

The term “F-bomb” first surfaced in newspapers more than 20 years ago but will land Tuesday for the first time in the mainstream Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, along with sexting, flexitarian, obesogenic, energy drink and life coach. In all, the company picks about 100 additions for the 114-year-old dictionary’s annual update, gathering evidence of usage over several years in everything from media to the labels of beer bottles and boxes of frozen food.
