Drinking Machine / Drinking Machine

Drinking Machine

When we use a drinking machine, we use our eyes to put a glass right under the outlet of the water. Now, we redesign the drinking machine and the glass for the blind people. Not only do we fill a magent on the surface of the plate which is under the outlet, but we also fill another one under the bottom of the glass . Therefore, when the glass is placed on the plate, the magent of the glass can help users to put it at the right place by using their sense of touch. The goal of this function is to help the blind use the drinking machine more efficiently.
