Perkins Braille Writer

Winner - Bronze

Competition: Spark:Pro
Designer: PDT Design Team
Design Type: Health, Universal
Company / Organization / School: PDT

The Next Generation Perkins Brailler retains all of the features that made the Classic Perkins Brailler the most widely used Braille writer in the world, plus incorporates new features users have been asking for. It is lighter, smaller, easier to carry and quieter than the Classic. Its gentle touch keys require a lighter stroke, making brailling more accessible for young children and people with physical limitations. The tactile-friendly, virtually indestructible polycarbonate shell – in high-contrast, contemporary colors – houses a metal frame and the same durable metal inner workings of the time-tested Perkins Brailler.
