designer's own words:
If one can’t see, one can touch. Sense of touch is what the blind relies on to get through the routines and tasks of everyday life. But reality is that the Braille system, which the blind depend on for guidance, is not massively existent throughout our environment. In this fast-paced, ever-changing society, it is extremely difficult for the blind to enjoy and catch-up to all the experiences the rest of the world seek and take advantage of. But with the “Braille Tape”, messages and symbols can be applied and encoded on any object or place at any given time. This new medium can open doors in creating easier access and greater opportunities for the blind. With the simple steps of stick and push, raised letters can be created with flexibility and convenience. The “Braille Tape” can play a great role in assisting with study, memory, communication, and much more. It can be applied to better aid the lifestyles of the ones in need.
