Jewellery box for visually impaired people- My GCSE Project

Barney42Barney42 Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hey, I was wondering if anybody could be of any help with my GCSE project. I am taking DT GCSE and I have chosen to design a product that helps people with visual impairment. My initial idea was to create a jewellery box with different compartments and textiles to tell them apart. I was also thinking of a large magnified mirror attached to the box on a hinge so it could swing up and down. Your thoughts/improvements would be greatly appreciated. 
Many thanks,
Barney

    Hi Barney
    I think using different textures is a brilliant idea. Mirror would be very handy too. I'm just struggling to think of a suggestion for necklaces as they easily get tangled up

    Thanks I can imagine that necklaces would be a problem. I'm struggling to think of a suitable solution at the moment but I will get on it! :smile: Our project is all about an iterative design process which means we have to constantly improve our designs. This will be a great improvement once I think of a solution. Thanks for your reply it is much appreciated :smiley:
