The Tuvie is an impressive design and provides an excellent solution for the blind. It kind of reminded me of Sumit Dagar's prototype smartphone that's outfitted with a haptic touchscreen that translates text into brail.

Cabe, Daniyal Thanks for sharing those info, But I still believe that talking wrist watches will do the needful with the help of talking button if they can't hear it cn be repeated.
Cabe what are the real application of this?

Kudos to the creative efforts that went into this design.  Great job of thinking outside of the box and creating an analog timepiece that is so unique and also beneficial for the vision impaired.

@Perry I hope you have noticed how classy the watch is. The display is just amazing it is light on my wrist as well. For fun sometimes I play psychic with my friends pretending I'm a descendant of Cronus, you know the Greek god of time. The Bradley combines class, style and fun. Then again, I'm sure visually impaired people find talking watches a bore. Maybe you are in traffic and all you can hear is continuous hoots. I think the Bradley deserves a rating of 9 out of 10.

It's so amazing how one can come up with a solution to help the visually impaired in checking the time. At least someone thought of ensuring that the blind also beat deadlines by knowing what time it is. Nice watch. This is a must get.

I've been using this watch for several months now and have experienced only one notable instance where the ball locations did not correspond to the time, which was pretty easy to detect.  As the makers indicate, you just tip your wrist back and forth a couple of times until you don't feel/hear the balls rattling around and then you know the balls are 'locked in' and indicate the time.

While I have correctable vision, I do like being able to check the time in meetings without taking my eyes off 'the boss'. :))

Daniyal Ali,

I agree. The Tuvie is an impressive watch. The digital display looks extraordinary. I can see the watch being easy to use because of the raised segments integrated within the face of the device. Very nice watch indeed.

Thanks for sharing Cabe. The movement of ball bearings could lead to error in time measurement. This confusion could hurt the credibility of this watch, especially for the blind people as they will always be shaking their wrists to be sure of the time.
I liked the idea of Tuvie more. In which they had the digital display of time and the digital numbers could be felt because of the emboss application.
