The Next Generation PC for Blind users

Posted by Shailendra Doke | Feb 28, 2008


Siafu is a PC designed to give sight-challenged people a more intuitive computing experience. It gives digitally tactile interface that completely revolutionizes the way that blind people interact with a computer.

Siafu lays flat like a tablet and allows the user to fully interact with it by way of touch. The surface of Siafu utilizes a "conceptual material" called magneclay, which can morph upward into any shape. This means that Siafu can generate infinitely refreshable Braille and then display it in a book format. Siafu also has the ability to display images as a 3D relief, which allows blind users to experience digital images and graphic layouts for the first time.
