Blind traffic lights / Traffic lights

Blind traffic lights
Blind traffic lights

It is dangerous when a blind person cross the street as they couldn't see the traffic lights. So this is the design that could help them to know which direction is safe to pass.

The design uses the magnetic force feedback technology to drive a little array of squares. It can induct capacitance of the user when a blind person touches the pillar of the traffic light. So when the green light is on, the blind could know the right direction to go by feeling the movement of the squares, so they can go cross the street safely.
