The school science project of Shubham Banerjee, a 12-year-old student from California, has been nothing more and nothing less than a braille printer made of Lego bricks.
A braille printer usually has a price that exceeds $ 2,000, which is not exactly affordable. Compared to traditional printing machines, the imbalance is staggering. Even among 3D printers, a technology that is still in the process of reaching the masses, there are inexpensive models that go below $ 400 (the equivalent to euros is not always exact). There has not been such a radical cheapening in the world of braille, at least not until now. Shubham Banerjee, 12, has used Lego bricks to create a device designed to make the blind alphabet more accessible.
