tactile mobile phone for the blind by peter lau
designer peter lau has sent designboom images of a concept mobile phone for blind users. unlike typical cell
phones which rely on claw grip or finger tip action, 'touching' utilizes palms for an ergonomic user experience.
equipped with fourteen functioning buttons and one functionless button - the device's button configuration
is positioned in a grid for fast thumb navigation. the layout provides a concave faceted surface for tactile
interaction, alongside an operating scroll wheel for ending calls for intuitive functionality.
