WATCH the world again / watch used by the blind

WATCH the world again

Considering the limited application ranges of time broadcasters, I designed a watch for the blind to help them know the time and distinguish between day and night by touching.
Specifically, my watch is concisely composed of a ball and a minute hands, representing the hour and minute respectively.
Moreover, it meets the blind’s demand about distinguishing day from night. The installed positioning system is intellectual enough to give information about the local sunrise and sunset. Therefore, users can simply touch the dial to feel its temperature. Two modes of temperatures (warm and cold) are available, representing the daytime and the night.
