Increasing access to 3D modeling through touch-based display

In our latest project we collaborated with members of the blind and visually impaired community to develop a touch-based display and application that makes 3D modelling more accessible. This work was done with Alexa F. Siu, Son Kim, Joshua A. Miele, and Sean Follmer. The work received a Best Paper nomination at ASSETS 2019 and was featured in Stanford News, TechCrunch, Core77, and others.
