I would like to take this opportunity to publicly curse zweimeter, and anyone else who would have brought up this concept, for giving me any reason whatsoever to be disappointed tomorrow.

(So as to say, it sounds nice, but I doubt that it's going to happen [this year].)

Please, it's "too good to be true", not "to good to be true". I couldn't let you write it for a third time without correcting it.

Thanks, im not a hero in english.
I say it several times because else it will be such a disappointment for alot of people. Everything fits for a tactile feedback display, thats why sone people are actually "expecting!" it now. Thats wrong imo:(

Btw, why does senseg want to remain silent on questions about who uses their tech?
I find it fishy and maybe they are just ordered to keep their mouth shut?
If i were ceo of senseg and apple didnt asked or ordered me to remain silent, i would have just said yes, or "maybe in future wich means no.
Saying yes will take all the exitement to senseg and thus they will get more deals and profit ect.
Or am i wrong?
Why dont talk about it? Its not like a super life threatening personal question???

Hehe curious if the screen can actually hurt you with this. Would be cool to give the pain experience to a friend:D

What would be he benifit of that technology?
This could quite possibly bring the iPad to a whole new group of people: the blind.

I have no idea how the apps could be implemented or even if it's possible at this time, but I have hopes that this would be helpful sometime in the future. I have a friend who was blinded just over a decade ago and I think he'd really love something like that!

I don't know about the iPad, but interestingly (and perhaps counter-intuitively) the iPhone is already extremely popular among the blind and visually impaired.

The reason is that voiceover works very well for screen-reading and navigation. Apple have put a lot of effort into great accessibility features.
