An Indian has developed a unique smart-phone that can aid the blind and help them perform functions other than answering calls.

Technology has definitely been a blessing to humans and smartphones have become the need of the day. With having everything from the daily wake-up call (read alarm) to good-night reads (ebooks) on your phone, it has become an essential, almost a basic need.

Developed by Sumit Dagar, who is still working on setting up his formal organisation at the Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship, located in IIM-A, the phone is the world’s forst Braille smartphone.
