Crowdsourcing Mornings: Eone Switch: An Accessible Tactile Watch For Everyone

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:  https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

The Eone Switch is a new, innovative timepiece that’s evolved from conversations with you, our community, and the belief that inclusion is not just about access, but also the freedom to choose. You choose how you tell time; use touch or sight. You choose your style; with interchangeable Rings. Your timepiece says a lot about you, so choose your message and let the Switch do the talking.

Our timepieces feature the original ball bearing design that gives wearers the option to tell time by using their sense of touch or sight. One ball bearing glides around a recessed track on the outer edge of the face, indicating hours, while another circle a track on the top of the face, indicating minutes. Eone timepieces are powered by Swiss Ronda quartz movement and stunningly crafted with carefully selected, high quality, materials.

Our timepieces are designed to bridge a gap between accessibility and style, allowing people who are sighted, blind, or deaf-blind the same access to a functional, sleek, high-quality timepiece, unlike any other watch previously available.

The success of our original timepiece, the Bradley, inspired us to keep improving. We spent over a year talking to users of our timepieces, about their experiences. We listened to what they love, what could we do better, and what they would like to see in our designs. We took those insights and after a meticulous and challenging redevelopment process, the Switch was born.

As of November 15th, this project has raised $90,000 of their $60,000 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $15, you will get digital wallpapers.  For a pledge of $310, you will get one Eone Switch.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eone/switch-inclusion-style-and-choice-in-one-sleek-timepiece?
