Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Dec 22, 2017

266-12-22-17 Buddha Board
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
I don’t know about you but I am all about relaxing.  If you’re looking for a product to help you relax this winter, check out the Buddha Board!  The Buddha Board provides a Zen-like painting experience for individuals with anxiety, depression, autism, or anyone who simply wants to relax.
You simply paint on the surface with only water and a bamboo paintbrush and watch as your creation comes to life.  As the water slowly evaporates, the art magically disappears "leaving you with a clear slate and a clear mind..."  The Buddha Board is essentially an Etch-a-Sketch, but with water and a paintbrush.
The Board was inspired by the whole Zen idea of living in the moment.  It also helps people master the art of letting go since the artwork disappears.
