This was done in the name of irony, not intended to offend in any way!

         i·ro·ny/ˈīrənē/Noun:
                    The expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

In my line of work I come across some weird and wonderful things, one such thing was a request from a customer to have the signs on an automatic doors in braille.
One of the signs we use is a "Keep Clear", I was not sure how you can have a Keep Clear sign with braille!

That got me thinking about the paradox of a braille push pad that said Do not touch!

So, because I have a warped view of life I thought I should make one :-)

Step 1, obtain the Braille alphabet

Step 2, do the design in AutoCAD and scale to the push pad size

Step 3, cut out design and stick it to the face of the push pad

Step 4, drill the holes with a 3.5mm drill bit

Have you ever wondered why there is braille on drive in atm's at banks?

Well, I assume that the banks thought that if they make it that far then you wouldn't want to be stumped by the key pad!

Have you ever seen See no evil Hear no evil?

Very true!
I have a friend that is blind and his mom said that it is so that a blind person in the backseat of a car could use the atm. She thinks it is ridiculous because it is really hard to reach the atm from the backseat.

Your last two letters in TOUCH are wrong. The second half of the C and the H are upside down.

Other than that, very cute...I think I'll make one for my reprap.
