Braille AlarmClock / Adjust time for blind

Braille AlarmClock
Braille AlarmClock

For visually impaired people, time is a kind of feeling, cause they can’t SEE the time on the clock, not to say adjusting or setting up the time by themselves. An easy task for us may be a trouble for them. As we were a child, we learned to recognize time by rotated and touched the long and short hand. “AlarmClock in braille” continues our learning experience. I keep the behavior of spinning the clock needle. Users don’t need to use the tiny adjusting needle and the unintuitive way to set up an alarm clock. “AlarmClock in braille” provides an intuitive and easy way for everybody to use, especially for visually impaired people and elders.
