O-C / assistant tool for blind

1.3 billion people around the world have disabilities, 30% of them are blind people. They are afraid to look different from non-blind people. So they feel very uncomfortable not distinguishing the color and the pattern of the clothes. We wanted to reduce this inequality.

We didn't use it because only 10% of them can read Braille. Instead, we designed nine shapes using associative techniques. 86% of them have visual impairments due to illness or accidents, so they remember the color-related symbols.



Just Match it with the color and put it on a hanger so they will be able to pick it up easily by themselves.
