The project not just sports 3D printable models virtually of everything you can see in the comic, it involves 3D graphics, Motion Capture, immersible 3D panels for each panel on every page, inside which people can zoom and pan around in the comic book using haptic technology over the internet enabling readers to explore all the comic book panels.
A special edition of the comic will be made using vacuum forming and 3D printing techniques, enabling tactile fedback needed for a visually impaired / blind person to read and experience the book on their own terms in their everyday environment without any further technical equipment.
Please share this with your fellow comic book enthusiasts and do let me know what you think!
A narrated version of the video will be added later – Just need to secure the voice artist and do some post processing.
All the best – Hope to hear from you soon.
Here is the Video Transcript / description for the trailer with focus for the visually impaired, next step will to get a voice artist to read two different versions one voice over with the texts alone and then one version with both the text audio dubbed and the image descriptions audio dubbed t the same time, please let me know what you think:
