3D printed wearables are nothing new. We have seen a bunch of interesting ones in the past. Designing them does not have to be challenging. Not when you can use a tool such as Tactum to get the job done. This augmented modeling tool lets you design 3D printed wearables on your body. You will be able to interact with your models on your skin and customize them easily.
Tactum uses computer vision and projection mapping to detect interactions with the body. The system consists of a Leap Motion Controller and a Casio XJA251 projector. You can touch, poke, grab, and twist digital designs on your body. Users will be able to export their designs for 3D printing quickly. What do you think? Are you impressed?
