Niall Slater (Braille Band)
Entrepreneur: Niall Slater
Business: Braille Band
Niall redesigned the personal refreshable Braille display to bring digital media connectivity to the fingertips of the blind and partial-sighted community for a fraction of the cost.
Currently, a refreshable Braille display can cost between £3,500 and £10, 000 depending on the amount of Braille displayed. His device employs a patent pending mechanism which vastly reduces the number of moving parts required to produce each Braille dot. By these means, his device will be able to display more Braille without directly increasing the price of the product.
