Away from the bustling crowds of the exhibit hall at the 2023 NFB Convention, Blind Abilities podcast host Simon Bonenfant met with Klaus-Peter Hars, Founder and CEO of Inventivio. Inventivio’s newest products is the Tactonom Reader, a new device designed to help blind and visually impaired people have greater access to tactile graphics.
From the Inventivio Website: “The Tactonom Reader is a new technology that makes it easier for blind and visually impaired people to access the graphic world. By combining the sense of touch and language explanation, even complex content becomes understandable. The name Tactonom comes from ‘tactile’ and ‘autonomous’, because working independently without the help of third parties is important to us. The Tactonom is an interactive, camera-based graphic display with which any information can be displayed. It will consist of more than 10,591 tactile points and will enable independent work.”
Klaus demonstrates this incredible device in action by showing how accurate the camera and tactile technology is when studying tactile maps, floor plans of buildings, large open spaces such as Churches, mathematical concepts, etc. Klaus even demonstrates Tactonom’s capability for seamless descriptions of 3D printed models.
