Haptica / movable Braille timepiece


Haptica is a Braille watch concept, which by function enables the user to get a quick and accurate time reading while maintaining user discretion. Through form, Haptica elegantly negates the stigma of a disability while providing an intuitive ergonomic interface.

By eliminating the stigma that often comes with a disability and providing an intuitive user experience, Haptica effectively communicates both the time and the value of thoughtful design.
