Blind Color Painting

The Touch Color concept has been specially designed to make blind people able to draw and admire colorful digital pictures. This innovative device comprises a Rainbow Picker in a form of a scroll wheel, which contains Braille dots that allows blind people to select a color from 24 available. After selecting a color, this device differentiates the colors by generating varied temperatures through LED bulbs. Then the user can paint on a thermal art board by using their fingers and the thermal-color display technology keeps the track of the lines and colors the blind artist is using.

Artistically inclined or not, this concept of “Blind Color Painting” sure sounds like technology is heading in the right direction.

Designers: Yun Li, Guopeng Liang & Ke Zhao
