3D printer plays a key role in development of Privacy Visor
The National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Maezawa Mold have been co-developing a wearable device, the Privacy Visor, to protect users' privacy from SNS facial recognition.
The Privacy Visor is a Google Glass-style device that uses LEDs. By illuminating a user's face with invisible light, it can prevent privacy invasion through surveillance camera-based face recognition systems.
It was announced that 3D the printer Objet30pro, from Stratasys, which is distributed by Japanese foreign industrial machine reseller Altech, has played a significant role in developing the Privacy Visor.
Maezawa Mold utilizes Objet30pro regularly to make trial models. The frame of the Privacy Visor has a unique shape, so the 3D printer is able to form the desired shape quickly, which was very helpful to make a prototype.
