There have been great innovative designs that make life easier for the sight impaired. A few good examples are the Bruno Bell Mug, Touch Color Digital Braille Drawing Board, and The Universal Phone. These designs are all dedicated to the blind. Here’s a look at a few Innovative Designs to help the Sight Impaired.
Above is Siafu PC by Jonathan Lucas. Lucas’s design gives the blind a fair chance to explore the world of computers in a limitless way. A conceptual material called magneclay or magnetized liquid possessing limitless morphing capabilities forms the base of this design.
And below, the B-Touch developed by Zhenwei You is an iPhone kinda phone with a Braille interface voice systems and programs to function as regular phone, book reader, and object recognizer.
This new color-reader by Lifeng Yu (The Bright-F) detects the brightness, saturation, and hue of colored fabrics, thereby allowing a blind person to literally pick his choice of color. It relays the color information via a voice feedback. Below this specialized Rubik Cube (by Zhiliang Chen) has six different basic materials: Metal, wood, textile, rubber, plastic, and stone. Different textures make it easy for the Blind to comprehend and play a joyful game!
