More senses / straw

More senses
More senses

This design is provided more senses for more people to know “I have less water now !” and supply it immediately.
There is a just hole at lower straw. When water is decreased on the position of hole, it will be produced some sounds and different feeling of suck at the moment. In this case is used the sense of hearing and feeling of suck to tell the blind how much water do i have and must need to supply it.
“More Senses” is thought about psychology of the blind in inconvenient life. It’s help a lot to judge things by one more sense in this situation.
