    Humanistic Design: A Puzzle for the Blind by Jacqueline Tollington

    This tactile puzzle was designed by Jacqueline Tollington, a Canadian multidisciplinary designer, as a mapping aid for the visually impaired. The surface of the puzzle is a transcript of a topographic relief of city, region or country. These puzzles can be made on demand, whatever the desired relief, according to a laser cutting process. When the puzzle is over, visually impaired players have the opportunity to better represent the geographic location of their choice. This concept is still in draft form and is not yet commercialized. Very nice idea turned to a humanist design. (Photos credit: Jacqueline Tollington http://www.coroflot.com/jtollington )
