Feeling Time

If you were blind, how would you tell time? Well, you could buy a watch that requires you to open the face and feel the hands, or you could get David Chavez's cool new watch.


Each dot is on a turning disk, which correctly aligns so the right time can be read, by sliding a finger through the channel. It has a very cool and modern aesthetic, especially when compared to current watches for the blind. Not to mention it allows the users to check the time much more easily.

Great design occurs in this product by focusing on a relevant need in a niche market. Many times, niche markets will have glaring needs others have yet to fill, and corporate America doesn't fill because the market is too small. By getting into a niche, you can ensure your product will be a success.
