Cup for the visually impaired

Drinking is a simple action for common people but it is a difficult task for the visually impaired.
Using a simple design inspired by a buoy, the device helps the visually impaired to keep track of the location of the water level. When the container is seventy percent full, the buoy will come in contact with the visually impaired user so he/she can prevent overfilling and spilling water.
