helping blind youth to see the stars

Funding 3D printed astronomy

We got together with people who create and code at the osos.nz hackathon to innovate together on opensource projects.

Arturo Pelayo uses 3D Printed Astronomy to allow the blind to experience the stars at Tactile Astronomy.

  • Tactile Astronomy needed hardware for augmenting their 3D Prints /which was funded/
  • They also need software to coordinate human interactions with hardware /needs funding/

Gardner Bickford is making it easy for people to vote with your money at Cobudget

ii wants to give them both a platform for shared innovation:

  • to collaboratively edit shared code on a website
  • and have that code running on real hardware instantly

We look forward to working closely with Arturo and Gardner in the coming weeks to help them innovate openly together.
