In our journey in which we as ARC 6014, strive to use technology as a way to reach out to the community and use it for change and improvement we accomplished a new project. After we learnt that when blind citizens get out to eat, some corporations try to sell the remainders to them rather than listing them what is on the menu, we decided to work on a project to eradicate the situation. We started a project in Café TriBeCa in which we 3D printed menus with the Braille alphabet. With this project we hope that we will be able to reach to blind people and help them get integrated in the community without facing challenges and without needing anyone else. As a robotics team we never considered technology as a consumptive thing but rather a way to improve other people’s lives.
Recently we have completed an interview with FOX TV regarding our project. You can watch the interview at 08:00 news on FOX TV, February 18. We hope that we will be able to reach to greater masses and inform the public about the situation which will lead to more projects accomplished in the area and lives of the blind will improve throughout the globe.
If you would like to learn more about this project and would like to reach more people, please do not hesitate to contact us: http://www.arc6014.com/contact/
