Painting Together / Painting Tool for the Blind

Painting Together
Painting Together

People who are born blind have no idea of colors,so I link colors with their hearing and smell.I designed a coloring book and a matching drawing board.Paintings in this book are divided into different color blocks by raised lines, and each color block's color is marked in braille in the upper left corner .The drawing board can sense the pressure of the crayons and identify which color block the blind is drawing.Then it will play the music corresponding to the color block’s color and release the corresponding virtual smell (for example, red corresponds to festive music and apple fragrance).It also gives the blind a kind of spiritual enjoyment.
