Hello Haptic has created flash cards for blind children that teach them about the world.

From the zoo to the beach to the forest, the collection of flash cards teaches blind children the textures they may encounter and what they are. The Hello Haptic flash card collection also teaches smell, letting children familiarize themselves with the scent of wood and pavement (among others). A great flash card collection to stimulate blind children's senses!

Implications - Corporations are making products for the visually impaired because they encompass a large portion of the market, but often cannot utilize items that are created for the visually abled. Corporations may consider fashioning their wares for the visually impaired in order to garner a larger portion of the consumer market.
