U-disk Touch / U-disk

U-disk Touch
U-disk Touch

This product is specially designed for the visually impaired. It combines the traditional U-disk with a snap ring, which makes it easy to distinguish the front and back sides of the U-disk by making use of the flexibility of the metal memory shrapnel inside the snap ring .
The whole U- disk takes the shape of a leaf . If the user presses the veins of the “leaf”, the U-disk can bend in the front direction. The front and back sides of the U-disk can be easily distinguished by touching the surface of the curve.
The shell of the U-disk is made of soft anti-electrostatic silicon material.
