Imagine the plight of the blind guest at a party of sighted friends. Chatting becomes a challenge when it’s tricky to know where others in the group are standing. One solution: hand out chunky glass swizzle sticks which create a chink loud enough to identify a person’s location.
London-based designer Christina Biliouri has used smart technology to create the Transensing line of glassware that will help the blind interact through touch and sound. For example the In Between Bubbles glass allows the blind drinker to hear the sounds from the similar glass of a partner elsewhere in the room by means of wireless gadget in both glasses.
