Yahoo! Launch World First Hands On Search. Yahoo launched the worlds first hands on search in Tokyo as part of a project to help visually impaired children access the internet, and engage with the outside world. Yahoo placed pods like the one on the left, in various hostels around Tokyo which could recognise a verbal search. The children would speak whatever they wanted into the machine and the Yahoo Pod would recreate it with a 3D Printer. This allowed the kids to touch what they couldn’t see! Anything from giraffes to skyscrapers became something they could touch and feel thanks to this great idea from Yahoo!

Check out the video below to see the project in action!
