About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

350 mi. blind people facing several difficulties in their everyday life. Most of them are technological detached from the society of information and they are experiencing a severe luck of book titles. As a result of that, they don’t have the same life opportunities like all other people.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

The vision of our team is a future with equal opportunities for all. Equal opportunities in everyday life, equal opportunities in education, equal opportunities in technology. Equal opportunities for millions of blind people around the world. And how we can achieve that. By creating a single, small device that can transform every existing eBook into braille. That can store all their music, which can help them with small everyday things like the news, the weather or getting a taxi in front of their door. That can feel it as an extension of themselves.
