Blind maps for iPhone - interactive braille interface with iPhone

In a 36 hour project for the CIID, designers andrew spitzmarkus schmeiduch and ruben van der vleuten
have developed an assisting device for the visually impaired to help improve their abilities in discovering
and navigating new routes throughout cities. known as 'blind maps', the braille-like interface provides
users an interactive experience with real time auditory feedback and tactile integration. it allows you
to become aware of upcoming intersections, turns and hazards on route - helping them adapt to
unfamiliar environments.
