Touch Colours

Blind persons only feel the world with a different perspective, and they could observe even more sensitively. Still, it is a pity that they can not enjoy the magic of colours. 'Touch Colour' is equipment that helps blind persons to connect colours with objective world. It looks like a ring, blind persons can read colours by touch the top of the ring. With the help of this equipment, blind persons can intuitionally realize the colours of the object they are touching. For example, raw bananas are green while ripe bananas are yellow; in which colour a friend is wearing clothes or how the colours of leaves are changing through the whole year.
