Vibrating Braille Cell Phone

An ex-teacher at a school forthe blind and a professor from Tsukuba University of Technology haveworked together to create a cell phone which sends out vibrations thatrepresent Braille symbols. This handset is meant to help those withhearing as well as sight difficulties to communicate with one anothermore effectively. Touted to be the first of its kind in the world, allyou need to do is push the keypad numbers that correspond to Braillesymbols, where a pair of terminals attached to the receiver's phonewill vibrate at a specific rate in order to recreate the message. Withall the vibration going on, hopefully you have a cell phone chargernearby.
