Today we bring you an interesting new watch project seeking funding via Kickstarter.com. The concept is called “Haptika” and its a modern take on the Braille watch, no port-hole crystals or noisy talking watches required. Kickstarter.com is a site where ideas can be funded by audiences of the site, its sort of crowd sourced venture capital. In exchange or a donation of $5 or more, you can be part of the project to bring the Haptika watch into reality. The Haptika is a modern looking watch with a horizontal path for swiping ones finger across a membrane that imprints the current time in a four cell structure. A blind user would read 0-8-3-5 for 8:35am. It seems like a great idea and a pledge of $250 or more will get you your very own Haptika watch, a t-shirt and a braille wrist band. They are looking to raise $150,000 total and have 9 days left to hit their goal and with over 33o total current backers the project seems to be gaining steam and its understandable given the cause that it supports. Follow this link to check out video explaining the idea and pledge if this is a project that deserves a place on someones wrist.
