The blind socket / Socket

The blind socket

For blind or low vision people, they always have a hard time plugging in their electric equipment for difficult to distinguished from wall.
We decided to make this from changing the socket drastically so that blind and low vision people can easily find the plug holes by touching.
Surfaces besides the plug holes are slope that guides blind and low vision people to find the right direction.Also,two gaps on the slope surfaces remind are reaching the plug holes.
