The Japanese division of the well-known company Yahoo decided to try its hand at creating devices for 3D printing. The prototype of the first printer has already been officially demonstrated at the presentation of the company in Japan.
Presenting the new 3D-printer, representatives of Yahoo Japan said that it refers to the “devices of the future”. The main feature of the novelty, called Hands on Search , is to support voice control. Thanks to this function, even visually impaired people or even the blind can use the printer.
It is reported that the 3D printer Hands on Search “responds” to the voice commands of a nearby person. Moreover, the user can simply say what exactly he needs to print, and the printer will independently start searching for the model and start printing. By the way, print a small piece of plastic printer can in just 15 minutes.
The first printer Hands on Search has already received one of Tokyo’s universities. In the future, Yahoo plans to supply such 3D printers to local schools and other educational institutions, where people with poor eyesight are trained.
