As you can imagine, the concept of understanding color can be incredibly challenging for visually impaired individuals. The Reveal project aims to bring a tactile system of simple shapes that can be easily learned by anyone for application in everyday life. Using tactile flashcards and posters as well as an audio-app for smartphones, colors are associated with touch and relayed to the user. Tactile tags on clothing and other objects then provide color information simply be feeling.
