Haptica, A Beautiful Watch Set in Braille

Currently, the blind have two ways of telling time: using an audible watch or an open-face watch to feel the watch's hands. This watch, the Haptica, actually sets the time in Braille and could become real with your help.

For fear of sounding insensitive, the watch is admittedly great lookin'. That's not the biggest of concerns but setting the time in Braille could make it easier for the blind. And hopefully if non-blind people get behind the project, the watch could also raise awareness. Check out the Haptica at Kickstarter. [Kickstarter via CrunchGear]
