Watch For The Blind Features Ball Bearings To Tell The Time

bradley-watch-2

Whether you’re unable to see or just have an aversion of looking down at your wrist, the Bradley watch will let you tell the time without ever even having to open your eyes; that’s why the makers want you to call it a timepiece, and not a watch. It uses two ball bearings to indicate the hours and minutes, one on the face and the other around the periphery, in special tracks. Magnets hidden inside put the ball bearings in the right place, so that all you have to do is touch your watch to know what time it is. The face features clearly textured hour markers to make it even simpler to find your way around. A $128 pledge to the Kickstarter campaign will get you one, with delivery in November.
