Innovations Pick- The Omnifer

iPads are not devices that heavily cater to the visually-impaired – but that may soon change thanks to a new accessory called The Omnifer.    The device, a Braille overlay, has the ability to change dynamically based on what is currently on the screen by utilizing gas pockets to raise and lower dots on the thin material it uses in conjunction with light from the iPad.      Soon enough, vision or not, everyone will be able to waste time playing Angry Birds.
