13 year old invents braille printer!

Hi All, 
I saw this on the news tonight and in USA TODAY and couldn't wait to share it with you! It's just amazing! 13-year old Shubham Banerjee created a braille printer out of a Lego robotics kit for a school science project, and with the help of his family, turned his idea into a start-up with Intel Corp. The average braille printer cost about $2000 and his Braigo will sell for about $350.00.  This is such a huge relief for the blind and their families 
because the Braigo is less expensive. Now it's possible that more people, schools and agencies will now be able to afford a braille printer.

Enjoy & get educated!
