Bell Mug Helps Blind People Pouring Water Into A Cup Without Spilling

Pouring a mug with some drink is often quite difficult for blind peoples. Generally, blind people gets an idea of how much they have poured by the sound of water flow, but this is certainly not an efficient way. The Bell Mug helps blind people to pour themselves a drink securely without spilling. The handle of the mug contains three different levels to choose from as per the userโ€™s requirement. After selecting the level, the user will start pouring the mug. The device contains a built-in sensor to determine the current water level and will make an indication sound from the speaker when the water reaches the desired level.

  1. I'm sorry, sighted people really should ask blind people when they're trying to design products for them. Most can tell how full a glass is – even one they're unfamiliar with – by listening to the resonant pitch of the liquid while they're pouring.

    • hahahaha I was just about to write that. so true. Anyone who can see can close their eyes and begin pouring into a cup and know when to stop by the resonant pitch, as you said, however, how a blind person can accurately pour a fluid into a cup without missing the cup completely and not touching the glass in order to not contaminate it is beyond me.

  2. So have you ever been in a kitchen with the radio/washing machine/cooker/microwave/ turned on? Or when there's a storm outside?

    Yes, resonant pitch is a great way for the majority of us but this cup at least solves a problem for the few that need it.

  3. Where can this be purchased. My mother who is 98 has just lost her sight and I need to purchase one as soon as possible.

  4. "It is very difficult for the handicapped even if a man can do it easily."
    Are we to infer that in the opinion of the author, being a woman is a handicap? I hope so, because that's hilarious.

  5. YOUS ARE FUKHEADS THIS MAN HAS TRUELY MADE INVENTION TO HELP PEOPLE AND ALL YOU CAN DO IS BAG THEM AND I HOPE HAVE A 1000 NEEDLES IN EYE THEN SEE!
