TactiPad Drawing Board
Exclusive sale with Blista Brailletec

The TactiPad is a versatile drawing board which enables visually impaired people (VIP) to make a tactile drawing themselves or on which someone can make a drawing for the VIP. These drawings are made with a special embossing technic on a thin sheet of plastic foil on top of a layer of rubber which will be edited with a pen or a different pointy tool. By firmly pressing down on the foil the lines will raise instantly, forming the tactile image. The ergonomic design will ease the handling and makes the drawing much more enjoyable.
The TactiPad has many applications: it is the ideal drawing board for leisure activities, schoolwork or in your professional career.

It is ideal for travelling because the board and its accessories can easily be carried in a case.
You can choose whether you want to make a simple sketch by hand or use the different drawing tools – ruler, set square, protractor and compass – for highly accurate drawings. Eight adjustable buttons and measurement indicators around the drawing surface allow you to accurately fixate the tools while drawing

GraphGrid and CircleFrame for even more functionality:

Besides the regular drawing tools, two additional accessories and their accompanying drawing tools have been developed to extend the drawing possibilities on the TactiPad even more.

The GraphGrid is the tactile equivalent of grid paper and uses rubber bands to add a grid to the drawing surface. This can be used for example to create tables, for drawings with repetitive patterns or for graphs and other mathematical drawings. In addition to the GraphGrid base plate and the trigonometry tool, three additional geometry tools are included.

The CircleFrame can be used for great accuracy in circular drawings. Using this drawing tool you can easily create images such as pie charts, the face of a clock or interesting circular patterns and motives.
