Hint Board / cutting board

Hint Board
Hint Board

Our design aims at helping blind to cut food safer. Based on the existing product for blind, we found that they are all very intrusive, Combined with the fact that blind people are sensitive on feeling, our design provide them safety feedback by tactile sensation. The middle fence help you place your knife in the middle of the board. And differentiate the chopped food side from
preparing side. Alarm lines, very shallow that you can feel it, but won’t impact the object you are cutting. Elevate the board to keep both sides clean, then stop the slices getting out. Pattern and braille to instruct what this side
is for.
