The Mole / Product Design

The Mole

Traditional blind-canes make their users know about potential dangerous barriers by pointing around. However, this method could makes them miss some relatively small size stumbling block on the ground. The Mole is designed to solve this problem by setting a 360°-turn-wheel at the end of a cane, which could makes it keep contact and scan nearby ground condition.
