Auto-locate / Toothbrush & bottle

Auto-locate
Auto-locate

This design considers to make it easier for the blind to use the toothbrush&bottle, because the blind distinguishes things by touching and locates them after a lot of practice. The difference of color does not help the blind to tell their own toothbrush from the others. The seeking of the bottle also wastes the unnecessary time in the next time.

Using the Principle of MAGNET to locate the toothbrush&bottle, and shape the toothbrush with different 3D-marks on it are the key solutions of this problem.
