“White” tactile cube / Auxiliary/Learn

“White” tactile cube
“White” tactile cube

In China alone, 450000 blind people are newly added every year. Touch is one of the main ways for blind people to perceive the outside world. In order to make new blind people adapt to the environment faster. We have designed a tactile magic cube called "white", which is composed of six different tactile materials. You need to touch carefully to judge their differences. In the process of repeated use, you can even buy different levels of "white" to improve your sense of touch. The appearance of "white" can make the new blind people integrate into the new environment faster and reduce the time cost of learning to a certain extent.
