Touch Watch / watch

Touch Watch
Touch Watch

Touch Watch is designed for blind people who cannot recognize time by visual sense. It presents the accurate time by bulging or sinking each unit of the digits in order that the blind could identify the time by touching. It transfers the visual expression of the time into tactile expression. Plus, the way of presenting time of the touch watch for the blind is similar to other watches designed for normal persons, which blends the bound between the two and makes blind people feel more comfortable. The concavo-convex structure is also of great fun which can earn both the blind and normal people’s appeal.
