Help Make This Wild Braille Watch A Reality
David Chavez has a dream. He wants to build this wild-looking Braille watch that shows the time by moving little rotating dots along the face to spell out the numbers in Braille. Even if you’re not visually impaired, you have to appreciate the ingenuity and usability this watch, called the Haptica, has to offer.
The project is up on Kickstarter now, so pop over and pre-order if you’re so inclined. Considering most watches for the blind haven’t changed since the early 1900s – take this Seiko “Braille” watch for example – this is an interesting step forward.
