MakerBot published this project on their official website:
This project tries to resolve a problem that will solve all the others.
The problem of communication.
How can two persons that speak two different languages can not understand each other in 2015?
Not being able to communicate our ideas lead to conflicts -- either minor ones or major ones.
Communication is the basis of the well-functioning of our world.
Having a language that will suit to EVERYONE would be a good solution! All the cultures will be able to understand it, and "speak" it.
The mute, the deaf and the blind are able to communicate as well.
Abstract, non-cultural, non-personal, this language suits to the majority of the humanity.
This project might seem to be ambitious.
The idea is that each of us has a role to play.
You can contribute to the spread of a new language.
If you start using it, you'll help the world to resolve uncountable problems!
If we haven't acted, we have to react!
