Andrew Mitchell’s Squibble concept is a portable communication device, sporting a Braille interface, that will aid visually impaired or blind users interaction with the handset. The gadget provides tactile, audio and high contrast visual feedback.

This portable device supports Bluetooth connectivity, it allows personal interaction and it comes with an external metal case, for a more rigid feel. The tactile feedback is generated via Braille and illuminated caps, thanks to 779 ultrasonic motors. Said caps are placed on every motor, supporting visual readings.

Thanks to the Squibble concept interface/device, blind users can now easily communicate and interact, provided that the product makes it to production, which we hope will happen.
