This project is focusing on the drinking problem of the blind. We provide a cup with both inner cup and outer cup and the cavity between them provides an optical cavity that can amplify water sound and prevent overflow at the same time. When the inner cup is catching water, optical cavity amplifies the sound. When the inner cup is full, the optical cavity disappears and the sound decreases along with no increase of pitch. Thus, there will be an obvious sign of that the cup is full.
