The Eone Switch is a wristwatch that doesn’t require vision to check the time. It uses two rotating ball bearings to indicate the current hour and minute, enabling those with visual impairments to tell the time with touch. This new model features interchangeable tactile faceplates and includes two in the package.
People with visual impairments could soon join in the fun and frustration of solving a Rubik’s Cube. Puzzle fanatic Bondarenkoyt peeled off the stickers of a standard cube, then created textured squares that could be felt with fingertips. To prove that it’s usable, he solved it blindfolded. Now someone should put this into production.
For the visually impaired, braille is used to read printed documents. However, the raised dots don’t exactly translate to those with full sight. Kosuke Takahashi came up with this concept for English and Japanese typefaces which are readable both with your fingers and your eyes.
“If it tasted like steak, I’d get it.” Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison puts his senses to the test as he tastes several different Jelly Belly jelly beans and attempts to guess their colors. We’re guessing that it would be just as hard to guess the flavors if we were simply blindfolded.
