To Study Shape in a School for Blind Kids: Sawareru Kensaku

さわれる検索 - Yahoo! JAPAN


"Sawareru Kensaku" is a 3D printing project to print out different types of objects for blind kids to learn shapes by touch. At Special Needs Education School for the Visually Impaired, University of Tsukuba, when kids request what they want the printer to print they just have to order by calling the name of the object, then the printer automatically starts to search the 3D data and print out the object. The printer has a lot of 3D data including animals, buildings, ghosts, and new data have been kept added. This project is run by Yahoo Japan, and the 3D printer is supported by MakerBot.
*This project has closed since March 2014.
