B-Touch cell phone with Braille touchscreen is an iPhone for the blind

Designer Zhenwei You's B-Touch cell phone would give blind users the same kind of multifunctional versatility that the iPhone enjoys. Instead of a glossy touchscreen, the B-Touch instead has a Braille interface that'll allow sightless navigation through the phones proposed features, including voice recognition and speech, a simple navigation system, and a scanner that can read text from a page as well as recognize objects.

As with the many other Braille-enabled devices we've seen, the B-Touch is sadly just a concept, but you have to wonder how far off this kind of technology really is. Check out more of the B-Touch in the gallery below, or see how it works in this video.
