3D printing makes itself useful for blind children

<p> " <a href="http://sawareru.jp/en/">Hands of search</a> " is a wonderful project initiated by <a href="http://www.yahoo.co.jp/">Yahoo! Japan</a> which demonstrates once again that <strong>3D printing</strong> can have healing and educational virtues. At a school for blind children, engineers built a machine that combines <strong>voice recognition research</strong> with a <strong>3D printer</strong> . The idea behind this is to allow children to feel, to touch the outlines of items they can not see. Touch is a primary meaning for the visually impaired. The principle is quite simple, the child presses a button and states something he would like to touch (dragons, giraffe, dinosaur, etc.). The machine searches among its bookseller for available <strong>3D files</strong> . If she finds the object, the child just has to press another button to start <strong>printing the 3D model</strong> . For now the database of "Hands of search" includes 110 <strong>3D models</strong> but is destined to grow thanks to the contribution of individuals and companies. </p><p> <a href="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-aveugles-enfants-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-%C3%A9cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-1.jpg"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-aveugles-enfants-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-%C3%A9cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-1.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 1"><br></a> <img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-12.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 12"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-13.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 13"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-14.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 14"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-15.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 15"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-16.png" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 16"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-11.jpg" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 11"><img src="http://fichier3d.fr/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/cults-hands-of-search-yahoo-enfants-aveugles-recherche-vocale-impression-3D-Japon-e%CC%81cole-tokyo-fichier-3D-17.png" alt="cults hands of search yahoo blind children voice search 3D printing Japan school tokyo 3D file 17"></p><p> Source: <a href="http://creativity-online.com/work/yahoo-japan-hands-on-search/32681">Creativity</a> </p>
