Considering the fact that blindness usually (if not always) leads to other heightened senses, the Feelor Touch the Color pencils are ingenious. It takes this idea and runs with it, providing a—theoretically—easier way for blind children to learn colors.
Designed by Noh Ji Hun, the Feelor Touch the Color pencils feature object toppers that denote what color the pencil is. For instance, red is represented by an apple, yellow by a chick. Although seemingly simple and perfect for children, I do agree with YankoDesign in that only experts in this field will be able to determine its success.
