A Different Point of View

Touch&Turn is concept product that Menno Kroezen designed to make cooking a simpler, safer and more satisfying experience for the blind and sight-impaired. An induction burner has raised, Braille-like dots which indicate temperature levels; the user positions the handle of the pot—which is insulated on the exterior [but not the base] to prevents burns—to the appropriate heat setting by touch.

I find it's always a good exercise in critical thinking to approach a situation from a vantage point other than the norm. That's something I try to do on my blog, kbculture, and I've noticed that the host of this blog, Paul Anater, shares a similar outlook.

Thanks, Paul, for letting me contribute once again to your site. Happy holidays to all.
