More recently some have turned to using their mobile device to announce the time. But technology has moved on. South Korean developer, Dot, has produced a Braille smartwatch. It displays information using active Braille cells and it connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth (just like other smartwatches) and can receive any text from any app or service. Find out more about this interesting device, which is also a good example of how technology is changing lives. The link also has a video that shows how the Braille cells activate.
