A robotic sensor developed by researchers at the U.K.'s University of Cambridge and trained using machine learning algorithms can read braille about twice as fast as human readers.

The robot braille reader can read 315 words per minute with an accuracy rate of 87%.

It features a fingertip camera that helps it read, and the machine learning algorithms help eliminate motion blur.
