The unique Transensing project rightly observes and acknowledges the difficulties visually impaired individuals can have when socializing. By introducing glassware that emphasizes the importance of touch and sound, this initiative explores a different way of communicating.

Created by London-based product designer Christina Biliouri, the Transensing project involves embedding electronic gadgetry into the glassware. Comprised of 'Where Am I?,' 'In Between Bubbles' and 'The Sound of Memories,' each collection feeds off different emotions and interactions.
