EngNow 2013 - 360º Leadership Training

Design Competition for Visually Impaired

The Design Competition for the Visually Impaired (DCVI) was held at the CLP Centenary Building on 15 September 2013, where the competition’s finalist teams from 7 different cities across Asia presented their ideas to an international judging panel, and participated in an exhibition showcasing their design solutions aimed at “transforming lives” of the visually impaired.

Throughout the day, the collection of prototypes ranging from redesigned utensils to sophisticated transport and navigation systems helped the DCVI to attract over 100 guests, including many visually impaired persons, who voted for their favourite designs and gave valuable user feedback to the participating teams. The EngNow Organising Committee was delighted that the guest of honour, Mr Chan-Yau Chong, President of the Hong Kong Blind Union, helped to reveal the competition’s winners and shared his views on recent innovations for the visually impaired at the end of the well-received event.
