6dot Braille Labeler: Dymo for the Blind

by Paul Strauss

I could never imagine what it might be like to be blind, but I can only think that it would be incredibly challenging to function in today’s increasingly visual world. Imagine trying to use the flat touch buttons on your microwave without being able to see them. But telling the difference between the popcorn and the baked potato button isn’t nearly as big a deal as picking the wrong  jar of pills out of the medicine cabinet.

Now, one little Kickstarter project aims to improve the lives of the visually disabled, allowing them to easily label everyday items with Braille.

The 6dot Labeler is a simple, yet ingenious device which allows the blind to label items with Dymo label tape. But instead of printing out letters and numbers, the 6dot outputs braille tape. The lightweight, portable device will allow its users to easily label common household objects, and improve their overall independence and quality of life.

The project aims to raise $50,000 by September 10, 2011 in order to get the 6dot into production. Head on over to Kickstarter to contribute to the cause. Frankly, I think the guys over at Dymo should get into the action here, and help push the project across the finish line – maybe they could even pony up some free label tape for 6dot’s customers.
