If you are visually impaired, it can be hard to access many electronic devices. Computers have special equipment to make typing and visiting websites more accessible, but newer techology is often built only for people with full sight.

Korean designer Dot worked on a way to make the smarwatches more accessible and designed the first smartwatch that uses Braille and comes with an impressive set of features.

The watch displays the information with the use of four Brailly cells that move dynamically and allows the user to select the character update speed. It connects to smartphones with Bluetooth and can receive text from apps and services like Messenger or others. The watch can also be used to send messages.
