Blind Touching Watch

The Touching Watch is inspired by water ripples, which is combined into the shell of watch to tell time for the blind. The surface is made of soft material, whose texture can be changed by moving pointer. The blind can tell time just through blank part of the ripples. It can also be used in public place, easing the blind.
