Project 3D prints photographs to keep memories alive for the blind
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.
The world is becoming an increasingly visual one thanks to the advent of computers and touchscreen displays, which are now embedded into our daily lives. For people without vision, their environment is one that needs to be heard and felt, meaning that core aspects of life are becoming closed off. We recently wrote about the Japanese government’s project to 3D print contoured maps for the blind, demonstrating how new tech can actually benefit those with sight problems. Now Singapore’s PIRATE3D is hoping to use 3D printed models as a memory aid for blind people, enabling them to feel moments from their past.
