Visually Impared Enjoy 3D Art

Date: April 17, 2013

According to VentureBeat, Harvard students are using 3D printers again!

A group of students at Harvard are helping the visually impaired enjoy art in a way they never could.

The "Midas Touch" project takes flat images and, using additive manufacturing and 3D printing, gives them depth.

“We want to bridge the gap between the visually impaired and the visual world of art,” Constantine Tarabanis, one of the brains behind the project, told VentureBeat.

“People with vision have a incomplete understanding how the world of the visually impaired is different from ours. A lot of sensory stuff isn’t meaningful,” said tarabanis.

The Midas Touch team even addressed the issue of color.

“Color is important, but people with vision tend to overestimate its value,” said Tarabanis.

3D printed parts can be painted after completion for enhanced customization.

This marks another great step in 3D printing and adds excitement to where it will be used in the future!
