DOT Watch - Braille & Tactile Smartwatch

DOT Watch - Braille & Tactile Smartwatch

The DOT Watch is a great example of Inclusive Design, which strives for products that are desirable for all while addressing accessibility issues for some. I have normal eyesight, but I’d love to learn braille and rely less on screens. Some features definitely need improvement, but it deserves our support nevertheless.

Hippo&Crate Toothbrush

Hippo&Crate Toothbrush

Minimal yet thoughtful design. The black-and-white pairing works for his-and-hers bathrooms, and the flat handle stays put at the edge of the sink or over a cup. Not sure how the activated charcoal helps, but it surly sounds pretty cool! The bristles are soft, which is great for sensitivity but not for those who prefer a forceful scrub.

Google Pixel 3a

In a world where smart phones boast about their thin bezels, 8 cameras, and gold-plated backs, Google Pixel 3a sets itself apart as the sensible and humble alternative. What you get is arguably the best camera in any smart phone, and all your favorite Google apps in their native Android environment. At $399, it won’t break the bank either.

Hario V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper

The design is purposeful and timeless. The spiral ribs inside the cone drain beautifully, and a quick rinse in water is all you need to clean up. Size 1 is perfect for single cup. Size up for brewing into a pot.
