Something I want: Haptica Braille Watch

I want the Haptica Braille Watch. Really, I do.

Check out this bad boy:

The watch appears to function just like you'd expect it would: braille bumps (yeah, probably the wrong term) allow you to figure out the time.

And why do I need such a watch? Two reasons come to mind: The first is that it sure would be nice to be able to check my watch without others noticing, useful when a meeting is running over. Second, it would force me to learn at least a tiny amount of Braille, which I'd think would be a useful life skill.

Alas, the watch doesn't exist, so I can't yet add it to wishlist. But, I can fund the project partially, doing my part to make this watch real.

Of course, before I can do that, I've got to apply to Shira for the funding. She may be a bit harder to convince that Neeeeeed this watch, but I just may try.
