‘Touch Colour' Uses Heat Identifiers to Pick Hues & Create Art

‘Touch Colour’ is a revolutionary painting tool for the blind. It uses special technology that associates different colours with different temperatures in order to properly identify them.

The ‘Touch Colour’ is a tablet that a blind person uses as the canvas. They simply scroll through the colour wheel (which is not only temperature identifiable but also braille as well) to select their colour of choice and then place the wheel onto the tablet and begin drawing.

The user can also keep track of their outlining, shading and any other aspects of the drawing by simply feeling the constant warm of cooler colours on the tablet. The ‘Touch Colour’ is a beautiful advancement as far as technology for the blind is concerned. Kudos!
