When Seiichi Miyake found out a close friend was losing their ability to see clearly, he wanted to help. That desire led to an entirely new way for the visually impaired to navigate big cities, railways and parks.

In 1965, Miyake invented the tactile paving slab (or “Tenji block” in Japan) with his own money. Monday’s Google Doodle celebrates the first introduction of the block, 52 years ago.
