Yahoo! Japan wants to make you cry with this awesome video of visually-impaired Japanese children using phenomenal cutting-edge technology. The video shows the children playing and learning with the help of a Hands On Search 3D-printer that uses two buttons and voice-controls to print whatever they say. The exterior of the printer is this weird lumpy cloud thing that the children seem to love, but the technology itself is insane. The user interface could not be easier and the children with varying degrees of blindness can touch the figurines and learn about the shapes of the things that they requested. If you don't tear up a little watching this, you have no heart:
