Those with a visual impairment will often listen to the sound of the beverage being poured into a cup to know when it's filled, but the 'Feelable' Drink Cup aims to change this. Designed with a flexible aesthetic, the cup features portions that will expand to let the user know the level of fill at all times. This prevents spills and helps users know how much they have left rather than relying on guesswork.

The 'Feelable' Drink Cup also enables users to know the temperature of a beverage by allowing it to be felt through the notch sections of the cup rather than putting their fingers in to test. The cup is the design work of Yu Hoseong and is the winner of the Red Dot Design Award for 2016.
