Vibration Tumbler / Tumbler For Blind People

How Blind People Use a Cup?
Would they feel the anxiety routinely because of uncertainty amount of water they poured? If the water is hot, they could get scalded. They don't know how amount of water is poured.
So I wanted to help them visualize something they can't see. As we usually use our own tumbler, I thought personal cup is need for them.
This tumbler is designed to fit perfectly with our each finger. Intuitively, they can control amount of water by positioning of fingers. If they press the button they want, the sensor in that will be work. After the water is filled with the position of the sensor they choose, this cup will vibrate.
