Digital Braille Watch

Design Award

  • Tong Biomedical Design Award Honorable Mention

Project Overview

In order to determine the time, the visually impaired currently depend on talking or tactile analog watches. However, talking watches are disruptive, while the tactile analog watches are difficult to read and fragile. Our client desires a device that uses the standard Braille number system to display the time. This device should be no larger than a standard Smartphone, have a self-contained power supply, use standard Braille spacing, and display military time.
