dbGLOVE

dbGLOVE (www.dbglove.com) is a wearable device that digitizes existing touch-based alphabets, such as Malossi and Braille, to enable blind and deaf-blind people to use all the features of a mobile device to communicate with others, and to interact with the world. Users simply type messages on dbGLOVE using the other hand: they can be displayed on the screen, translated into speech, or transmitted over the Internet. Replies are sent to dbGLOVE, which translates them into vibrations that simulate touch cues representing letters over the hand, allowing the user to read the message.
