Mobile phone for the blind

Designer peter lau has conceptualized a mobile phone for blind  users. unlike typical cell phones which rely on claw grip or finger tip action, 'touching' utilizes palms for an ergonomic user experience. equipped with fourteen functioning buttons and one functionless button - the device's button configuration is positioned in a grid for fast thumb navigation. the layout provides a concave faceted surface for tactile interaction, alongside an operating scroll wheel for ending calls for intuitive functionality.
