MakerspaceUK: Making things accessible

 

Maker Space

I’ve just written a blog about 3D printing and the potential it has to significantly impact the lives of people living within the disability community. I’ve since come across a project where centres called Makerspace are springing up all over the UK and with different skills being used, there is potential for this to become big news in the world of technology for disabled people.

I’ve been hearing a lot about 3D printing over the past six months, and when I read up about it I was sure that it could be used in some way to manufacture specially adapted equipment for disabled people more cheaply. I decided to read about how 3D printing is helping disabled people to explore new ways of facing challenging situations and overcoming them.
