Time Can Be Touched
Time Can Be Touched

For those without visual impairments, it's a very simple and effortless matter to tell the time, but for the blind is very difficult, because they rely on tactile sensation to receive information. This product transforms two-dimensional surface information from the typical clock face into a tactile information interface by three-dimensional thimble, allowing the blind conveniently ascertain the time just like anyone else. This tactile approach to telling time can bring you life a fun and also to be a fashion style.
