Phone designed for the Blind shows importance of feedback



SENS concept phone
.
by Japanese designer, Takumi Yoshida

I’ve written previously about the importance of the correct type of feedback for input, especially when one or more of your senses fail you.

This SENS phone uses a combination of tactile sensors and audio feedback to the user. When a person key is pressed the phone informs the user and waits for a second press before taking it as an input. A click sounds when completed as well. For low vision users there is varius llumination for various status messages about the phone.
