Pin it button big

Bruno Fosi's Silicon Touch iPhone case was designed to aid the visually impaired join the cult that is known as iPhone users. Since the iPhone normally doesn't provide any tactile feedback, Fosi designed the case with modified low-relief buttons, each corresponding to a modified home screen on the iPhone and amazingly allowing for multi-touch and finger flick scrolling. The case also allows for a visible glow when on, since the case was designed for a wide range of visually impaired users, including those who still retain the ability to distinguish between lit and unlit areas.

Used with an app store application, designed in mind, for the Blind and the Visually Impaired, that uses special accessibility functions, ex: text-to-speech features and moon type tactile alphabet keyboard. This simple silicon case, covers all the Apple iPhone device, and with the help of the engraved bas-relief icons, keyboard and multi-touch scrolls, it gives fully access to the interface beneath. -via Bruno Fosi's site
