Bristol Braille Technology

Great concept! I wonder...

I love the simplicity of the design you have used- it's a very clean breakdown of the problem and how to solve it with traditional/inexpensive components. Rather than using a computer connecter (serial or usb) could an audio output be used to send this device the requisite information?

By which I mean could you have an app on an android or iphone, and plug this device into the headphone out port and have the device display the text or rss feed or whatever it is the app is displaying? I think that would be a fantastic addition to what i already shaping up to be a very clever and helpful device.
