A very cool new way of using a proven tool, Google Sketchup is a piece of software that is easy to use and can help you make 3D designs of houses, offices, anything. These can then be placed on Google Earth for the world to see.
A recent project called Spectrum explored how Autistic people, particularly kids use the software. Their natural strengths in visualisation enable remarkably effective and sophisticated use of this tool and potential create a longer term development path and perhaps even any industry.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this project, it gives us all hope for a better future through meaningful application of technology. Read more here.
