[x3d-public] for blind/deaf people

Don, I’m seeing See3D?

I was going to translate English to American Sign Language (ASL), but that wouldn’t help blind people.

Or would it?  Could we 3D print ASL somehow?  Maybe use robots that signed for blind people?

How can we bring literature to deaf+blind people?   Braille, yes.  There is newer technology for that.

Perhaps haptic technology has a play here.

I’m imagining some kind of 3D animatronics museum for blind people.
