can anyone tell how to design scissors for a blinds??
this was a question of a competitive design exam...
@zaveri • 01 Aug, 2012 • 2 likes since blind people recognize objects by sense of touch, then this scissors wouldn't be any different from the traditional one, because you got to handle a pair of it by its two loop-handles. and any blind person can distinguish the handle from the blades by just touching it.

the scissor blades can have protective plastic covers over them except for the the cutting edge.

but here comes the problem : how would the blind person cut the object ? how would he know that he is cutting exactly the portion he wants to cut , and how would he guide the scissors over it ?

the problem needs more data, and looks like a pair for universal application cannot be designed. different pairs for different applications would have to be deigned.
@zaveri • 02 Aug, 2012 Hey this is quite an interesting query. any ideas anybody ?
@marvin • 11 Aug, 2012 hi,
im, working on a plan to cut photos into concrete for blind person,
perhaps the technik to scann my pictures woud work on the scissors. on the side of the blades a line with sensors to see black and transfer it to a sound similar to the system in cars.
hope it helps
have fun
