How can a memory become touchable?

This is the question that has set the Pirate 3D team, a company that deals with printing and 3D printers, that gives an answer thanks to the social experiment called Touchable Memories.

This initiative aims to raise awareness on the infinite possibilities of using technology to improve their lives. The photographs were faithfully reproduced by Buccaneer 3D printer so that the blind and visually impaired could live those memories again, touching them.

Below you can find a video documentary directed by Marco Aslan about the potential of 3D printing to improve our daily lives.

Because wonderful things can be achieved when technology is for everybodyPirate 3D
