Tangible Photography

braille-polaroid-camera1

The korean designers Son Seunghee, Lee Sukyung and Kim Hyunsoo came up with an idea for a camera for samsung, that has been awarded with the 2008 red dot best concept (category: life science). The concept is based on the polaroid technology. The difference here: An integrated printer produces a picture made of braille-dots. The idea is to enable blind people to grasp and conceive pictures, they can not actually “see”.
