It's really encouraging that designers are creating disability-friendly products like the LG Loop. Designed for the visually impaired, it is a simplified, hands-free cell phone that has done away with buttons and the like.

By relying heavily on scroll dialing, a more intuitive system for the blind, the LG Loop clips onto the user and features an earpiece that clips into the phone when not in use. Conceived by Andres Parada, it was developed for an LG competition in collaboration with Auto Desk. Stats for Blind-Friendly Phones Trending: Older & Mild
