I once saw this little slate thingy at a convention. It was basically a keychain that was in the shape of a six-cell slate with the stylus built into the side, but instead of being a conventional slate, it popped up the braille on the plastic underside of the slate itself. It was kind of like a tiny plastic braille display that could be used over and over again. lol I think it wasn't meant to be really useful, having so few cells, but who knows.
I can't imagine reading books with only 8 cells though.

Welcome to the List, Maria. I've only been here a few days myself but can tell already that it's quite a friendly bunch here. And there's somebody else who likes the shorter braille displays like I do even. For all we know, maybe we would like the bookworm with its eight cells then. I was afraid to get one quite that short though, never having seen one. People use them for reading novels though. Again, welcome.
