Colibri is a modular platform creating a set of tools activated by bite for individuals which are paralyzed from the neck down. The tools are composed of 2 parts, a kit transforming the bite
to a mechanical movement that is 3D printed in SLS, and open source parts, that can be printed in any home printer, creating various end tools. Creating tools for leisure activities — table games and gardening — is the way to blur between needs and desires, which develops thought beyond the limitation. The use of digital production technologies (3D printing, laser cutting, etc.) enables detachment from the mass production, allowing a personal individual solution. The use of these technologies makes it possible to make adjustments and changes so that the personal product will provide an answer to other people with similar needs and limitations.
