Omnifer iPad case adds braille, makes the iPad usable for the blind

The Omnifer iPad case design is meant to make the iPad more usable for the blind, creating a space that raises up braille characters depending what's on screen.

Far more than just slapping a braille keyboard on top of the iPad's keyboard, the Omnifer uses gas to expand the braille up and down depending on the specific light signals coming out of the screen. It seems like it would require specific apps to function properly, but it could potentially make the tablet usable for a whole new section of the population.
