Hyungsoo Kim gained the thought for his “Bradley” timepiece when a blind scholar situated beside him throughout a class at MIT required from him the time.


Kim began an organization, Eone Timepieces, to make an answer.

They outlined the ‘bradley’, a material watch that uses metal balls rather than hands to give you a chance to feel what time it is.

The metal balls are joined with the watch developments underneath the watch face with magnets. The magnets permit the metal spheres to move again to the right time after they are touched with a straightforward shake of the wrist.

As per Kim, the two sorts of watches accessible to visually impaired individuals have disservices. Talking watches are frequently challenging to catch in uproarious, outside areas, while disruptive and humiliating in calm situations like a theatre or classroom.

Then again, simple watches with removable blankets break effortlessly and are amazingly costly to repair.

The Bradley permits the initially disabled to effortlessly and favorably tell the time.

For located clients, the timepiece permits a novel and discrete path of checking the time, be it in a professional or dim theatre.
