braille watch

The blind too need to be able to tell the current time so that they will be punctual for their appointments, and apart from wearing a watch that speaks out the current time or depending on the benelovence of kind-hearted souls on the street, how about using a Braille watch as found in this concept, Feel the Time? The watch face will come with rotating discs complete with a tangible nub on each which can be used to help the blind read the time. 3D rings tell one disc from the other, while a flexible membrane helps prevent the watch’s face from damage. There is a break located at the high noon position so that it can be a guide to tell the time accurately. We’re guessing even sighted folks won’t mind having this on their wrist…
