---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a Braille and voice output navigation map for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The Brainovi is a Braille navigation map that uses a combination of verbal instructions and touch display, to assist individuals who are blind or visually impaired greater freedom and independence while traveling alone. All the user needs to do is "speak" his or her destination into the device and wait for a 3-D map to pop-up, allowing him or her to ‘feel’ of his or her route. Corresponding verbal directions are relayed to the user via a Bluetooth earpiece, thus guiding him or her to his or her destination. The overall effect is to give the user a sense of freedom while traveling alone, without depending upon a companion. TITLE: 3-D Braille Map That Talks. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
