The first full page ItactI display was assembled in Germany on 24 February 2005.
The unit managed to display for the first time simple refreshable
tactile graphics. Several delays were encountered during manufacture and
assembly of the unit, but swift redesign by the engineering team meant
that the graphical display was presented on time at the final review
First indication of the refresh speed were very encouraging and are almost certainly capable of meeting the target
of less than 10 seconds for a complete refresh. Partial areas of the display can also be refreshed individually
to increase the effective refresh speed. Because the device is refreshed on a row to row basis, it will be
possible for the user to start navigating the screen before it is completely refreshed.
