Special Alarm

This alarm is specially designed for blind people. Besides rod photoreceptor cells, cone cells.There’re other photosensitive cells in our eye make us capable of responding to lights, including blind people. It is clinically approved that blind people have the same brain response as normal people when exposed to blue light. Based on that, our clock is designed by utilizing blue light. When the wake up time is on, the clock emits blue light and soft sound, hence blind people can wake up. Blaring alarm is abrupt for waking sleeping people, not to mention blind people, who are more sensitive to sound.
