The TactiPad is a versatile drawing board which enables a VIP (Visually Impaired Person) to make a tactile drawing themselves or on which someone can make a drawing for the VIP. These drawings are made on a thin sheet of plastic foil on top of a layer of rubber. By firmly pressing down on the foil the lines will raise instantly, forming the tactile image. The ergonomic design makes drawing easier and much more enjoyable.
The art of drawing tactually – drawing tactile art
The TactiPad has many applications: it is the ideal drawing board for leisure activities, schoolwork or in your professional career. It can even be used on the go or while travelling.
You can choose whether you want to make a simple sketch by hand, or use the different drawing tools – ruler, triangle, protractor and compasses – for highly accurate drawings. Eight adjustable buttons and measurement indicators around the drawing surface allow you to accurately fix the tools while drawing.
What can you use the Tactipad for
Besides the regular drawing tools, two additional accessories and their accompanying drawing tools have been developed to extend the drawing possibilities on the TactiPad even more.
The GraphGrid is the tactile equivalent of grid paper and uses rubber bands to add a grid to the drawing surface. This can be used, for example, to create tables, for drawings with repetitive patterns or for graphs and other mathematical drawings.
The CircleFrame can be used for great accuracy in circular drawings. Using the drawing tools, you can easily create images such as pie charts, the face of a clock or interesting circular patterns and motifs.
