You would never think how many daily tasks become difficult for a blind person until you see innovations like this. The Braun Bell concept mug is an idea that assists a blind person with pouring a cup of tea or coffee (or any drink, for that matter).

The Braun Bell concept mug helps keep track of how much liquid is in the cup using sensor technology. You simply hold down the desired amount of liquid you want using the Braille buttons on the handle, and the cup will notify you (voice speaker) when the liquid has reached that point.

The Braun Bell concept mug sounds easier than seeing and making coffee. Stats for Mugs for the Sightless Trending: Older & Chilly
