3D printed maps could help the blind navigate their city
Modern technology has turned many of the things we consume from physical objects into pixels on a screen. While this has benefited the majority, those with sight difficulties often struggle with touchscreen devices. In the past, we've seen Yahoo! Japan develop Hands On Search, a project that lets blind children carry out web searches with 3D printed results. Now, the country's governmental department GSI is creating software that will enable those with visual impairments to print out 3D versions of online maps.
