3384 Enrich the Heart by Using Beeswax Pencil

Today let me introduce an assistive technology product. This is “Mitsurou Pen.” It was introduced in “Barrier Free 2012” in Osaka.  This pencil produced by Akiyoshi Kurita who was an art teacher at a certain blind school. By this pencil, you can draw swelled lines. Disabled people can enjoy drawing works.

You can even draw on a glass or a plastic. Lines can be thin or thick. This pen keeps at constant temperature and has a cover of an insulating material, so you can use this safety. This pen’s ink is made from beehive, so it is safe even if the ink is taken by mistake.

Using this pencil, some blind children will try to be an artist. Since I know of this product, I think we should reduce barriers so that everyone can enjoy the life.
