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.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

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.
