Tactile Flash Cards for the Blind

Rhea Jeong, YoungSoo Hong, Sun Min Lee and Sae Hee Lee of Samsung Design Membership have it all figured out. Surely by now the schools for the blind have their lessons and so forth figured out by now, right? I mean, we’ve been teaching sight-impared folks for generations, right? There is ALWAYS room for improvement, everyone, and here is a big step!

Flash cards. I dreaded them when I was learning my multiplication tables. But they were helpful. And they remain helpful to millions of students around the world today. Students with sight!

The Hello Haptic set of flash cards works with Braille text and other tactile elements from environments the student might not otherwise have access to. The urge to learn is there! But as a blind person who must learn primarily through touch, the need is not fulfilled as often as it is with a person who can see.

In come the flashcards.

Learned become the students.

I was informed to mention the university these fine designers have attended. This is a great practice, carrying one’s university around, as it not only benefits you to have a good name under your belt, but as you grow, the university profits as well! And that’s your lesson from your Jedi Master Chris Burns today.

Rhea / Young Soo > Hongik University
Sunmin > Ewha Women’s University
Sae Hee > Hanyang University

And the world is again at peace.
