Falling in block / Product design(Public)

Falling in block

Visually impaired people entirely rely on braille block when they are outdoor. Braiille blocks help visually impaired people. However, braille block can be dangerous in bad weather. Because of I would like to suggest "falling in block".
The product body and braille of the block have thin holes which let rainwater flow through well as transfiguring the established braille.Additionally,road heat can melt snow more quickly with the block.Therefore, “Falling in block” eases pedestrians’ discomfort and helps them walk safely as showing the path.
