Hey what kind of chips are you using and what programming language are you building it in. Also i would be interested in paying you for limited usage rights to what you have currently, meaning i would be able to make the device but not sell it or mass produce it. My bestfriends are all blind and i want to make these for them and would be happy to give you feedback on any issues that come up.

Are you still developing this? Timeline for kickstarter?

is this compatible with voiceover?

Hi, just want to say you're a genius ! Awesome idea


Is the electronics part needed and the code available somewhere ?
Or since you are still working on it you are not releasing ?

I might have people who are in need of this..

What would be awsome... is to put actuators on the buttons, so they can also be a "screen", what would it take?

This is absolutely brilliant. However, how would someone navigate the phone? You should have some sort of nav buttons on the back too that lets blind people search apps by name and then let the assist tech describe what is on the page. Maybe even a button to toggle through all the search fields (like tab on a computer).

Very awesome.

That was actually figured out... From the main screen (home) on either the IOS or Android all you need to do is start typing what you want.... So you want messaging, just hit the combo for "m" and it will search and list all the "m"s in the phone.
