Feeling Kettle / Electric kettle

Feeling Kettle
Feeling Kettle

Traditional electric kettles are very dangerous for people like children and the elderly who are relatively weak and don't know how to use them. It is even more dangerous and also inconvenient for blind people who use it through the rough senses of their hands because most electric kettles use visual elements such as buttons or lights that are useless for them. Designed in consideration of them, Feeling Kettle helps blind people to use the kettle more accurately and safely by turning the visual information into tactile elements. In addition, it can be easily used by the weak because it moves on a pedestal without lifting it directly.
