The Bradley – New Watch Design for Visually Impaired
Tradtionally, watches for the visually impaired tend to some with some sort of audio element - a button you can push which makes the timepiece 'say' the time for its user. Which is fine, but somewhat inelegant - and not exactly helpful in noisy situations, or ones in which silence is a necessity.
Using a pair of moving magnets, the timepiece (they're actually quite specific about not calling it a watch...) allows the visually impaired to simply tell the time through touch, whilst simultaneously making it visible through sight.
It's a great piece of design, with real practical benefits - we look forward to seeing The Bradley on wrists in the near future.
