Today during a meeting with an association for blind people in Italy, MOLBED has been tested and we received a lot of feedback, that will be very important for developing a product that is tailored to their needs.
This is a short list of their suggestions / requirements:
-Multi line is not important as we might think; a standard size Braille cell dimension, on the other hand, is more desired to get faster read speed. The MOLBED character can be re-configured to take the same, or slightly longer space, but have the same pin size and distance as standard (expensive) Braille cells;
-Integrating a Braille paper printer on the docking station may be very interesting;
-Chances of funding for this kind of projects will probably be much difficult for the current "state of things", at least in this country, despite they recognize that this project really has a lot of potential.
So at the moment the Hackaday Prize is still the best opportunity for this project to be continued and give this people a low cost alternative to expensive products, and that can be really tailored on their needs!
