This oversized ring uses a camera to read regular text aloud for blind people. Just put it on and draw your finger over the text as if it was regular braille. The ring has haptic vibrations so you know when you’re pointing at a line of text. This thing will even translate the text for you if you are reading something in a foreign language. My eyesight is fine, but I still want one..
