The concept design of a braille e-book by Yanko Design

A braille e-book is a refreshable braille display using electroactive polymers rather than mechanical pins to raise braille dots on a display. As of 2013, they exist only in concept design; though not inherently expensive, due to the small scale of production they have not been shown to be economical.
