Careful Elevator / Elevator

Careful Elevator

Careful Elevator is designed for blind people who cannot recognize the direction by visual sense. It presents the accurate direction by bulging or smooth each unit of the entrance of the elevator in order that the blind could identify the direction by touching. It transfers the visual expression of the direction into tactile expression. Plus, the way of presenting entrance of the Careful Elevator for the blind is similar to the blind-street so it makes blind people feel more comfortable and easy.
