---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a watch that allows users who are blind or have low vision to perceive time by tactilely using shapes and temperature. The Rub Feel Know consists of a watch mounted on an open bangle bracelet. The watch face has differently shaped hour and minute circular markings, each mounted on independently rotating circles with the minute indicator outside of the hour indicator. Additionally, both circles maintain different temperatures to help the user distinguish between them. The hour circle has a concave circular marker and maintains a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius. The minute circle's marker is a smaller convex circle, and the minute marker maintains a temperature of 12 degrees Celsius. The user distinguishes the hour and minute circles by rubbing and feeling the difference in temperature and position of the tactile markings. TITLE: Feeling Time Hot & Cold!. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
