A major cost factor of braille displays has always been resellers and established distribution channels. The basic components of a braille display (the piezzomechanics) are available in bulk quantities, ready made, waiting to be connected to the outside world. Our plan is to apply the principles of "open hardware" to a design which makes a fully functional braille display starting from the basic piezzoelements. The design should use easily available components wherever possible such that (...)
