Keyphone seeks to make smartphones more accessible to blind people, while keeping the costs as low as possible.

The shell of the Keyphone has 16 electrically conductive buttons that pass an electric charge from the touchscreen to the user’s hand, allowing for braille and other inputs. Unlike the bulk of blind smartphone concepts, Keyphone could be produced today with limited costs and also offer many more functions such as GPS guidance with voice output, or reading printed text aloud.
