Affordance Braille Block / Braille block

Affordance Braille Block

In the case of fire, it is difficult for the general public to find a way, but in the case of the visually impaired, it faces more extreme situations. I usually go to the road by relying on the braille block that guides the road, but the act itself becomes impossible. So we made it possible for the Braille block to function differently in the event of a fire. By making the braille of the braille blocks facing in the direction of fire flatten and making them no different from the regular tiles, it is possible to induce the visually impaired to move to a place where there is no fire
