3D Printer Photo Tech Helps the Visually Impaired See

June 21, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Technology has a major role to play in modern society, as it holds the power to change human life. Prevoteau Mathieu’s Pentax prototype is such a technology that can be beneficial to people who are visually impaired.

The new technology uses a 3D printer, so that it can make a miniature model of things you photograph. If you take pictures of a flower, just hook up the camera to the printer, and it would produce a 3D printed version of the flower you captured.

Although this technology has many fun applications, it actually aims at those people with visual impairments.


This technology can enable them to visualize their surroundings in a new way. Also, they can take photos with the help of this technology.

The manufacturer has included a large camera button on the camera. Also, the device comes with logo-based camera settings, which help visually-imapired people to go about practicing simple photography.

Well, we feel not only the visually impaired but normal people too can find this interesting. We say this because you can feel the touch of an object you have captured in your camera.

So guys, what do you think about this technology?
