3D Printed Maps in Braille

February 28, 2016 Leave a comment

Another nice idea to take advantage of 3D printers Рmaps in Braille. For blind people it can be challenging to find their way in a new environment and existing maps that are installed in the buildings tend to have only limited Braille labels (if any at all). A 3D printed map specifically designed for the needs of visually impaired or blind people of, e.g.  a university building, could enable them to find their way more confident. The maps are portable, in size of a tablet. The maps are developed in the Rutgers University School of Engineering.
