When we recently came across the first prototype of the compasses for the TactiPad, it got us thinking: what if we could motorise it? What if we used a motorised drawing arm to combine the best aspects of both the TactiPad drawing board and TactileView graphics software? Your ideas and needs for innovating tactile graphics are summed up in the list of applications.
Introducing the concept
Using simplified models, we will demonstrate the concept of the motorised drawing arm in the video below.
