Blind smile / electronic product

Blind smile
Blind smile

Visually impaired people can’t feel others' emotions easily
rom their facial expressions,this could somehow become
a disorder for the blind to communicate with the world.
This special stick is designed to help blind people to feel
others' facial expression by different temperatures: warm
tells positive emotions, normal tells no emotion and cold
tells negative emotions. The temperature will change
according to the facial expressions the camera on the stick.
It would be a great encouragement when the blind feel warm
temperature and this could also help them to distinguish real
friends from false friends.
