Universal Blind spots / Universal Blind spots

Universal Blind spots

When stepping on a raised dot, you get to know that you have been to the first stair or the last stair. When down the stairs designed traditionally without light at night or with the light dim, we have no idea about which stair we have got to be on and always lose our footing for the last stair. We are easy to fall down, especially the blind. It is very unsafe and completely without humanization. The design of the general spots let you know that you are on the last stair on stepping on a raised dot. Such a crafty design solves the problem which the normal and the blind encounter, and be more safe and humanized.
