The Blind Adapter is an adapter made for people who are visually impaired.

The concept behind Blind Adapter's is to make it easier and safer to connect electrical appliances to power sources. The adapters can attach to existing electrical appliances and outlets with ease. The adapters use annular magnetic electrodes making the plugs non-directional. You're able to connect plugs at any angle and the magnetic force helps you guide the connecting sides together.

To make the adapters even more suitable for the visual impaired, you're able to get adapters with braille tags telling you what appliance you're plugging in. The magnetic connection also allows the adapters to easily detach so you won't trip over any loose cords. Stats for Visually Impaired Aid Adapters Trending: Older & Average
