Freedom Scientific has introduced the latest generation of its Focus 40 Blue braille display with an emphasis on durability.
The new Blue takes a page out of the playbook of competitors by allowing users to connect to up to 6 devices at once (5 Bluetooth and 1 USB). But the focus (no pun intended) of their announcement is ruggedness and protection against drops.
"Thanks to an aluminum extrusion on a steel base, the housing of the Focus 40 Blue is stronger than ever before. This eliminates any torsion that could be transmitted to the Braille cells, or other internal components. The housing also incorporates bumpers that deform to absorb shock when the unit is dropped on its end or accidentally knocked against a wall or door," according to the press release.
It also uses the recently-released USBC 3.1 Micro cable for charging which can be used in either direction, similar to Lightning cables on iOS. Updated Focus 14 and Focus 80 models are also promised.
The new Focus 40 Blue is available now for $2,995. Check the source link to learn more.
