TOM: Tikkun Olam Makers

A small machine that turns pages using an office rubber band

Sefi Udi, is an Industrial Designer and is also quadriplegic. He reached out to the TOM community to ask for help in developing a system that will allow him to turn pages in a book. Makers working with him offered to “hack” a kindle so the pages could turn with a blink of his eye, but we can all agree that reading from a kindle is not the same as reading from a book. The Accessi Book is a small machine that turns pages using an office rubber band wrapped around a wheel and a small holder that was 3D printed. This product costs less than $50 and can be self manufactured by any maker.
