PRIMARY FUNCTION:

INSPIRATION:
As a considerable vulnerable group, the blind deserves more attentions. Caring design is an important concept for designers. News always reports that the blind burned themselves by pouring boiling water into cup. How to pouring boiling water into cup without hurting the blind themselves is one of hot topics for designers. However, the most design achievements are complicated in structures and expensive in costs which adds troubles and economic pressures to the blind. So, making a simple and cheap water cup is important.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Fingertip Touch is a ceramic water cup designed for the blind. At the front of the cup handle a little groove connects the inside and the outside of the cup which allows the blind to perception of temperature with their fingers of one hand when the other hand pour hot water into cup and until hot water flow into the groove. Once they get the temperature information from the groove of the cup, they will know that the cup will be filled and stop pouring water. Material of the groove is thinner than the body of cup so that the temperature is easy to conduct. This cup is only made of ceramic. The firing process of ceramic is very mature and it is enough to achieve this design. The simple structure, the cheap material and the mature craftsmanship are characteristics of this cup.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is very dangerous for blind people to pour hot water. Fingertip Touch ceramic water cup was designed to solve this problem. The simplest way for people to perceive temperature is to touch it quickly with their hands, which is the key design point of this water cup. The special groove at the front of the handle of the water cup allows blind people to quickly touch the temperature sensing area, so as to avoid scalding themselves when hot water overflows.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2017 and finished in September 2018 in Jing De Zhen, Jiang Xi Province, China.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The mouth of the cup is slightly smaller than the body of the cup, so that the sound of water colliding with the wall of the cup increase when pouring hot water, it is also a hint to blind people. The groove at the front of the handle connected with the handle of the cup via a step which is used to indicate the function of this structure for blind people.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

TAGS:
The blind, Hot water, Safety, Cup

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:

The concept of caring design was introduced into the design of ceramic water cups. Fingertip Temperature was designed to solve the problem of pouring hot water for blind people.

CHALLENGE:
There were many difficulties when achieve this project. The most difficult part was the making of the groove which is the most critical part of the design. The groove is thinner than the other parts of the cup, so it needed to make a separate mold and then integrated with the handle of the cup. The firing of the groove is easy to deform and the integration of the groove and handle of the cup is difficult.
