This Is Dot Watch, The World’s First Smartwatch For The Visually Impaired

OK. We admit. We are several years late on this, but hey, it could be news to some still (namely, myself). Plus, to be fair, its grand launch was just December, last year. Anyways, here goes. This is Dot Watch, the first ever smartwatch designed for the visually impaired. So, yeah. This wearable tech literally puts information at the wearer’s finger tips. Literally because, quite obviously, everything that are being presented, be it Facebook alert, text messages, or what not, are displayed in braille form, so the visually impaired will be able to read them.

This Bold Circular Bottom Wood Smartphone Is What Phone Should Be

If you recall, Nokia was once the market leader of mobile phone. During its rein, it had made bold design iterations, including square device with two rounded corners. Now, look at today’s smartphone. Do you see much difference between them? Hardly. The materials may be different, but the design is pretty much the same. It is always the candy bar form factor and that’s that. And that is perhaps why the APOLLO II Concept Smartphone you see here looks super refreshing. When unleashing his creativity, not only designer Varnicic Branislav indulged himself by proposing the phone to be encased in one of the nature’s greatest gifts, wood, but the concept boldly touts a circular bottom that’s supposedly makes it more fitting in the palm of your hand.

I have spent a good half hour tracing the source of the image and landed on an Instagram account called Nedal Luxury.

The World’s Smallest Phone Begs The Question: Is There Still A Place For A Non-Smart Phone And One This Small?

Whenever a non-smartphone surface, we ask the same question all over again: in this connected world, is there still a place for mobile phones that aren’t smart? Apparently, there is and Zanco is a living proof because they have been making mobile phones that will feel right at home in the pre-smartphone era. In other words, they make phones with a regular LCD display that is strictly for digits and texts, and yes, the phones have physical keypads too, numeric keys. Sounds a little ancient, isn’t it? No doubt it is, but that doesn’t stop Zanco in believing there is a market for ‘dummy’ phones and it is making you notice this with what it claims as “the world’s smallest phone.” Continue reading The World’s Smallest Phone Begs The Question: Is There Still A Place For A Non-Smart Phone And One This Small?
