---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a set of Braille labels that are mounted on public handrails to allow individuals with visual disabilities to safely and easily navigate stairs.

The Safety Dot is a set of metallic Braille labels mounted on a handrail that inform the user of the number of steps remaining on the stairway. TITLE: Handrails That Speak. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
