Blind people friendly water dispenser

This project is aimed to improve drinking experience for blind people. We have spotted few problems when blind people use kettle or water dispenser. Most of the problem appeared in pouring and filling which need accurate positioning and awareness of water level.

Our design are created to fulfill all these need and added more carefulness detail for blind people. This water dispenser has almost no button which is supper easy to use and understand, we also put Braille on the filter so it it readable for blind people.

We believe this water dispenser would give blind people the same drinking experience as normal people.
