September 2016 saw the MyMiniFactory and Barclays Eagle Labs #enabledby3d design competition. With the brief to create an original 3d printable design that solves an everyday problem entries were submitted across the country.
Glifo has been designed to guide a pen towards paper, working alongside hand movements, enabling anyone with limited finger mobility to draw and write freely and easily. The design team were focused on creating a tool which is easy to clean, replicate and carry and which is comfortable and customisable. They have succeeded, creating a tool which holds a range of pens and pencils and appeals to all ages.
