haptic tattoo.

haptic tattoo for the blind by klara jirkova.

implants creating embossed text in braille placed under skin, can be read by touch - stroke by blind people. it could be either a small slide with embossed text in braille or bead-style implants (in this case the size of the beads must be a bit bigger than the standardized size of braille text. too small beads will sink in the muscles and they will not be embossed). alternative - transdermal implants, placed partially below and partially above the skin
