The Hapitca Braille watch for the blind: Beautiful, simple, inspiring [Video]

Here’s one to file under “Why hasn’t anyone done this before?” The Haptica Braille watch is a project currently raising funds through Kickstarter.

The device allows the blind to tell the time quickly and easily without the need to feel for hands on a clock face or to set off a noisy audio alert that disturbs others. It’s simply four braille characters that change to display the current time.

The project is currently a little over a third of the way to raising the $150,000 it needs to mass produce the product, with $93,700 still to raise.
