Magdot / Magnet for the blind


Convenience store products are not always friendly to everyone.
Most products do not provide specific braille information at all. Therefore, blind people have a limited choice in products. Magdot contains the minimum information for the blind to recognize their selection. Considering the features of the product, the two magnet pieces are combined then attached to the steel shelf. Also, non-blind employees who do not know the Braille can place the magnets by matching the shape of Magdot and reading the letters on the back. By Magdot, the blind will be able to understand the characteristics of drinks, which protects the Freedom of Choice.
