Piaf produces high quality tactile graphics using heat sensitive capsule paper. It is ideal for people who are blind and vision impaired. Piaf’s controlled heat source causes any black lines, letters or shapes that are drawn, printed or copied onto the capsule paper to swell. The result is an instant tactile graphic. It is especially effective when used with the Tangible Magic Paper. This paper with its superb characteristics allows the user to run it through the PIAF multiple times without compromising the quality of what has already been puffed up. This feature makes producing and handling tactile images more interactive and dynamic. Piaf is being used in a variety of educational, employment and personal settings. In early education Piaf can be used to introduce simple shapes and basic concepts; to introduce the concept of drawing and two-dimensional rendering of solid objects; to encourage students in taking the first tentative steps to expressing themselves graphically; and to teach the concepts of handwriting and signatures. Later, Piaf can be used to access graphical information in nearly all subject areas especially Mathematics and Sciences.
