Alphabet Blocks

Sometimes it's the little things that lead one to realize that 3D Printing is going to be wildly popular. Jordan Berger, New Paltz High School, New York, is a finalist in Dimension Printing's Extreme Redesign Contest competition. [snip] This new redesigned alphabet block would also be more educational then the traditional block. Usually with blocks, the only language is English, children growing up with the new blocks may become global marketers, dealing in many different languages since the new block increases exposure to different languages. Also, the child's creativity is increased by seeing the drawing symbolizing the letter, formulating the link and eventually spelling. These blocks may aide the child in their education in the future, and as a result, be an integral part of their life.
