A new concept device designed to give tech-powered smart fingers to the visually impaired may end up pushing forward interface design for us all.

The Thimble, a concept multimedia finger glove designed by Erik Hedberg and Zack Bennet, embeds an optical scanner in the glove’s finger tip that would translate paper text into Braille messages. The Thimble would also act as a location aware connection to the Internet that could deliver news or confirm your current location all via Braille messages transmitted through the Thimble’s sensor-laced fingertip.

You can see how the Thimble might work in everyday situations in the video below.
