The blind Cup / Disabled design

The blind Cup

It is a kind of cup specially designed for blind people. At the time of drinking, water in cups may overflow because blind people can not judge whether water in cups is exactly right, and they may be scalded.
Hand shank of this kind of cup can be moved up and down. When blind people pour water, they can move the hand shank to the lowest place. At the time of pouring water, the hand shank will move upward slowly, and weight of water makes cups move. When the hand shank moves to the top, water in the cup reaches up to the appropriate position, so blind people can confirm whether the cup is full or not through touching the hand shank.
