This Friday, July 19th, Nonprofit Commons is happy to welcome Cody Rauh, who will present to NPC on using 3D technologies for real world uses in physical and cognitive therapy. Using his game and virtual world development experience combined with his 3D modeling and printing skills, Cody decided to make a difference by designing tools and toys used in therapeutic environments for children with sensory issues, autism, and cognitive or physical disabilities.
He recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund this project: Zoobits.
