Kewl Design Alert: Thimble Cyberfinger Makes the World More Accessible

This is one of the most useful, incredible devices I've ever seen. Ok, concepts I've ever seen. This cyber-looking finger created by Erik Hedberg and Zack Bennet is essentially a Braille device: it connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and then either uses a camera to scan text or a text reader on the smartphone, and transmits them to the wearer's finger tip as electrical signals that replicate Braille.

I hope that this gets funded and can actually be developed because it's insanely brilliant. (I also hope the designers have a patent so that no one steals it from them).
