Tactile Timepiece For The Blind
A new watch hopes to bring aesthetic and functional design to an underserved market.
Haptica is a concept watch in development through Kickstarter, intended to provide those without sight a tactile method for determining time without relying on disruptive audio cues. Led by industrial designer David Chavez, the project aims to bring good design to a community that is often overlooked and underserved. Using a mechanical system that rotates braille notation into the center display, the design concept has won two international design awards, including the Spark Award for beauty and innovation.
