3D printed Touchable Yearbook to Help Blind Students Recall Memories With Their Friends #3DThursday #3DPrinting

3D printed Touchable Yearbook to Help Blind Students Recall Memories With Their Friends, from 3ders.org:

…3D TEK recently worked together with the Seoul National School for the Blind, the largest education facility for the blind in South Korea, to give its students an unforgettable graduation day. As the producers behind 3D TEK explained, ‘We showcased the yearbook for the first time on the graduation day which gathered more than 2,000 people. We gave huge impression not only to students but also to people attending. Now the students can recall the faces of friends even after graduation as long as they keep the yearbook.’

The graduating students were each given these Touchable Yearbooks, consisting of a series of busts of their fellow students, which was quite an emotional experience. Imagine just how valuable the gift of accurate memory is to someone who’s forced to rely on touch alone. As the team from 3D Tek explained, ‘our invention made a huge impression among not only students but also people attending. By the yearbook the students will not forget each other forever and we expect more blind students can have their own yearbooks afterwards.’ ….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
