          Project Goal

          Develop a Braille smartphone to improve life for India's blind people

          Location: India

          “Technology is giving everyone superpowers, but many blind people are not able to tap into these cool new features, and the technology is making them even more disabled. So I decided to do something that could reach out to this population.”

          While pursuing engineering studies in information and communication technology, a summer internship in a remote Gujarat rural village sparked Sumit Dagar’s interest in how disadvantaged communities might be helped by technology. Now qualified as an interaction designer, Dagar is devoting himself to designing a Braille smartphone that will allow blind people to benefit from advances in communications.
