Touch Corner / Barrier-free Card Sticker

Touch Corner
Touch Corner

Sustainable city systems are inseparable from the inclusiveness for visually impaired people. However, the various types of cards, which are necessary for daily life, are shaped and feel the same, making it difficult for blind people to distinguish between different cards.
Touch Corner is a set of card stickers designed for the blind. The raised icons on them have obvious geometric features, making it easy to be recognized by touch. The stickers are arranged on a panel. Users can learn and memorize them via Braille on the panel.
Touch Corner makes it easy for the blind to distinguish between different cards and others can also use it.
