LEGOs make EVERYTHING better. Well, except when they are left on the floor in a dark room when I’m walking barefoot.
A California seventh grader, Shubham Banerjee, used a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set to create a prototype printer that uses traditional calculator paper to generate braille text! What makes this concept so valuable are the potential cost savings and the relative ease of construction.
Pretty awesome; it’s also quite inspirational that this kid seems to really have a heart for helping disenfranchised people at such a young age:
LEGOs are not just toys, they are becoming investments in sustainable functionality — a rough prototyping resource!
Here’s Banerjee explaining how it all works – amazing!
