DIY  Guardian

Because China's blind infrastructure is relatively late, there are many blind tracks that are not considered to avoid obstacles, as a result.Nowadays, each braille tile is made up of two separate parts. When blind tracks has obstacles to block the passage, it can change the path artificially, thus avoiding the obstacles to make blind tracks pass through. By changing the layout of bricks by diy, it allows the blind to perceive which side of the left and right is more dangerous and to perceive the turn direction. People can also build simple Lego blocks on the blind tracks, allowing blind people to travel with an interesting companion.
