Perpetual Series
Concepts for Time-telling/Assistive Tech Devices, February 2007

Perpetual is a series of design concepts that would help the blind or individuals with low-vision tell time. One design would implement pins on motors to roll up or down to simulate braille digitally. The second and third designs would use voice-recognition technology. Both are rings because they appear ornamental, but the gestures of listening and speaking remotely to a ring are discreet. Also, the ring case would be a docking station to recharge the power of the ring.
