Dot (CEO Kim Ju-yoon, dotincorp.com) is set to showcase the braille smartwatch "Dot", the first wearable device for the visually impaired, at "SENDEX 2015" (Seniors & People with Disabilities Expo), which will run for three days from Thursday the 5th to Saturday the 7th at KINTEX.

The Dot Watch can express all letters and numbers by using four sets of six dots, when the visually impaired touch the product with their fingertips. This smartwatch has a module that uses braille to express what is on the screen, instead of the display. By enhancing the multi-actuator technology, the company dramatically decreased the size and thickness of the braille module, and is about a tenth of the price of existing braille devices. (The expected price is under 300,000 won.)

"Dot" not only has the basic functions of a watch, but also can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. It changes alarms, text messages, and numerical information into braille for utmost convenience. By diversifying the module shape, the company will apply its braille technology to various devices, including tablets, navigation and next generation VR haptic devices.

Last July and August, as reported in reputable foreign media such as TIME, BBC, and Tech Asia Popular Science, the company received many collaboration research proposals from foreign schools, research institutes, and NGO organizations. Global attention is focused on the company.

CEO Kim Ju-yoon said: "Only 10% of the visually impaired have a job. Dot's technology will contribute to the easing of inequality in information and education that all people with acquired or congenital visual impairment are currently facing."

The company is receiving orders for Dot Watch from customers all around the world. This is done through Dot's website (www.dotincorp.com), and the company is preparing for its first U.S. product launch.

The 11th "SENDEX 2015", the largest welfare exhibition in the country, is an event for seniors and people with disabilities. The exhibition acquired international certification from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. It provides various and specialized information about healthcare products, senior-friendly goods, assisting equipment, bathing products, post-retirement plans, emigration, and funerals for 7 million seniors and 13 million baby boomers.
