Braille Meets the Digital Age

Odds: 3 to 1
Get hands-on with Siafu, a PC designed to give sight-challenged people a more intuitive computing experience. It lays flat like a tablet and allows the user to interact with it by touch. The surface of Siafu utilizes a "conceptual material" called magneclay, which can morph upward into any shape. This means that Siafu can generate infinitely refreshable Braille and then display it in a book format. Siafu also has the ability to display images as a three-dimensional relief, allowing blind computer users to experience digital images and graphic layouts for the first time.
