Yearbooks are a brilliant keepsake that help preserve memories and remember old friends and classmates a long time after you've moved on. But those that are visually impaired don't get to keep such memories. That was until 3D TEK, a 3D printing agency partnered up with blind students in South Korea to create 3D busts of students heads - allowing students to touch and "see" their friends.

Each bust is accompanied by a name that is written at the bottom of the bust in Braille, just like the format of a traditional yearbook. Thanks to the advances and increasing availability of 3D printing technology these students now have memories of their school friends that will last with them forever.
