Wave Watch
Wave Watch

Wave Watch is a new type of watch specially designed for the blind, 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 two types of the moving pointer. Pointer of Blank smooths the surface, and Pointer of The Ripples makes heaves. All the blind need to do is to feel the part from the end to the begin of ripple, then they will know exactly what time it is. It allows the blind to tell time quietly, without causing trouble and embarrassment to them in the public. It is more friendly for the user.
