3D printed tactile map for the visually impaired
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Here at Springwise, we have featured a number of innovations aimed at people who are visually impaired. For example, a college graduate in Israel has created a new camera that creates 3D photos to allow people who are blind to see photos through touch. Another innovation is navigation app developed by students at a university in Poland that sends personalised alerts to students who are blind. Now, Howard Kaplan, a visualisation specialist at the University of South Florida, US, has created a tactile map to help people who are blind or have visual impairments navigate around different environments.
