iF concept design award 2014

iF concept design award 2014

“Blind Adapter” is an adapter designed for the blind. It can be attached to existing electrical appliances and outlets. Equipped with annular magnetic electrodes, the plug is non-directional and can be inserted easily using magnetic force. The magnetic plug can prevent the blind from being tripped up by the cord, which detaches easily when any pressure is applied. In addition, there are Braille tags that tell the blind which electrical appliance they are dealing with. Blind Adapter enables the blind to use plug-in sockets more easily.
