The picture above shows you the ‘Touch Sight’ a camera designed for the blind. Designed by Chueh Lee of Samsung China, the Touch Sight comes with no LCD display, instead there is a lightweight, flexible Braille display sheet which displays a 3D image by embossing the surface, which allows users to touch and feel the photo.
Designer Chueh Lee has found that the optimal position for this device is the forehead. The camera will record sound for three seconds after pressing the shutter button.
One should keep up with the latest content about digital cameras as well as that on lcd tv or a plasma tv as well as car speakers. How else would one know that we all have potential home theater systems at our homes.

Within this tiny little black orb lives a tiny little digital video camera. What makes the Camball unique is its totally self-contained digital video recorder.
All of the requisite electronics are crammed into a sphere that’s just a hair smaller than a ping pong ball.
The Camball can record 320×240 or 640×480 resolution video using MPEG-4 encoding. Since it stores everything on a tiny SD memory card, you can save up to 8GB of video with the appropriate card.
Alas and alack, this nifty little gadget is only available in Korea at this time, and there aren’t any plans to offer them stateside at this point. For the time being, you’ll just have to admire them from afar over at Korea’s Funshop.
Prices for the Camball range from 189,000 to 229,000 Korean Won (appx. $185 to $225 USD), depending on if you want the optional MP3 player capability.
