Haptica

Bronze
2008

Haptica is a moveable Braille timepiece that provides a quick and accurate time reading. Current Braille timepieces only help the user orient the watch hands in relation to the watch face but can lead to an inaccurate time assessment. Digital devices use sound to communicate the time, thus inhibiting the user from checking their watch unnoticed. Haptica provides the perfect solution by displaying a real-time readout in Braille using a military time format. The wearer simply scans along the Braille channel with their finger to check the time.
