Who said you can’t make a dif­fer­encer­enceren for the blind with LEGO bricks..

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - News Reel -

Shub­ham Ban­er­jee’s in­ven­tion all started with Lego blocks. He wanted to know how blind peo­ple read. Af­ter get­ting ad­vice from his par­ents to Google it, he choose to ex­plore ways to de­velop some­thing new for his school science fair project. Who would have thought you could build a ma­chine that could be used to print braille read­ing ma­te­ri­als on pa­per, by us­ing raised dots in­stead of ink, from a per­sonal com­puter or elec­tronic de­vice. What an ac­com­plish­ment Shuh­ham! Now at 13-year-old, Shub­ham Ban­er­jee is an en­tre­pre­neur. He launched his com­pany and is work­ing to de­velop a desk­top Braille printer that costs around $350 and weighs just a few pounds, com­pared with cur­rent mod­els that can weigh more than 20 pounds.
