Specific Tablet for the Blind


hapticom creates the first specific tablet for the blind.

There are more than 2.5 million (deaf)blind people living in Europe. Most of them suffer from strongly limited communication and huge social isolation. No adequate technology has been developed yet. Therefore, hapticom develops the world‘s first pure haptic tablet or smartpad for the blind – the haptiPad. This innovation will change their life radically and strongly foster social integration. Thus, hapticom offers a high commercialisation potential and huge social gains can be expected.

Via several fundings (from SAB, German government, EU, and the global investor Wayra for example) a convincing working prototype has been developed and tested, and will be marketed soon .
