Buoy Cup / Cup

Buoy Cup
Buoy Cup

It is very simple for normal people to pour water into a cup, or fill a cup with water. But it is hard for the blind to check the volume of water, when pouring water into a cup, or filling a cup with water, and they might be at great risk of getting hurt, when it is hot. For settling this problem, a cup for the blind to measure the volume of water was designed, based on the principle of buoy. When the cup begins to be filled with water, the buoy connected to the cup’s handle rises upwards gradually due to buoyancy. The rising buoy tells the volume of water by stimulating a thumb.
