Water toucher / Cup

Water toucher
Water toucher

The blind people are largely dependent on the sense of touch. They judge whether the water is full or not by putting their fingers into the cup when drinking. This will cause the water dirty and even hurt the drinker when the water is too hot. This cup is designed to equip itself with the two grooves of the silicon rubber film combining the plastic cup appropriately. The silicon rubber has the characteristic of good elasticity ,which can spring from the pressure inside the water.
