The ring concept will translate ordinary text to Braille that can be felt with a fingertip.
The ring will be equipped with a scanner and an array of six bumps able to raise or lower according to the letter read by the scanner. It will be worn like a regular ring, and then slipped onto the fingertip to allow the user to feel the Braille bumps as they change in response to the scanner moving across the text. The ring will also be able to convert the text to spoken words, which will be transmitted via Bluetooth.
