TIPO

Tipo is a Braille keyboard designed to help blind and visually impaired people use smartphones with ease.

Drawing from the design of traditional braille computer keyboards, Tipo takes the form of a small 3D printed attachment which clips onto the back of almost any smartphone. By pressing various combinations of Tipo’s six push-buttons, users are able to input any text they wish, with the device’s inbuilt circuitry translating the braille key presses into a standard text format that smartphone applications would be familiar with.
