Braun Bell Concept Mug For The Visually Impaired

By Andrew Liszewski

Designed by Sang-hoon Lee and Yong-bum Lim, the Braun Bell Mug is a pretty clever concept designed to help the visually impaired pour a beverage without overspill or having to use their finger to monitor how full the mug is. Inside the mug are three sensors that can detect how far it’s been filled, and the user simply has to press one of three buttons on the handle to choose what level they’d like. When the desired amount of liquid in the mug has been reached, an audible alert will sound letting them know they can stop pouring.

  1. to mcman – people who are blind are quite adept at using technology these days; in fact, they are surfing the Internet and using software through the use of assistive technologies that enable them to peruse sites and read/create documents in the same way a sighted person would. So, yea — they might just buy a mug – because they can “see” this.

  2. The real reason blind people dont see this is because everyone knows they are busy surfing porn like everyone else.

    You havent really 'seen' Debbie Does Dallas until William Shatner reads it to you on audio cassette.
