Designed by May Wilson, an industrial designer who recently graduated from Loughborough University, UK in 2009 — these are wearable bracelets that function as an alert to the wearer.
I love product designs that are out to level the playing field and make things healthful and helpfully accessible, especially to those who may want a little assistance. Her work is designed to provide a visual, and physical sensation so that the user may be notified of a current event that is happening in real-time, in a way that is convenient for the wearer to be notified. Designed for the hearing impaired, I can see how this could cross-over for someone who is visually impaired. It is a tidy and functional design. A great idea that is probably bound to go further!
