The Book of Eli, a post-apocalyptic dystopian themed film starring Denzel Washington, has the last known Christian Bible being the most coveted item on the planet. Unknown to most of the cast, this Bible is in Braille, and no one can read it except the hero. Seemingly, taking inspiration from this troubling future, YankoDesign's Wonkook Lee has conceptualized a Braille reading hand scanner called "Snail." This device is a handheld roller that senses the Braille and converts it to audio, via a speaker or paired Bluetooth headsets. The immediate reaction; why not just get the audio book version of whatever the person wants to read? Not every book is in audio form. A big example being, school text books. The Snail could read line for line, verbatim, of that book. Which, even to non-impaired students, would be preferred over having to read it themselves.
The bad guy did get the Bible in the end, but could not read it. But now, a fictional future could be changed thanks to an equally fictional device from YankoDesigns.
