In countries and communities across the globe, young inventors are doing remarkable things to make the world better for every child!

Shubham Banerjee, 13, U.S. resident of Indian origin, recounts his quest to make an advanced, affordable Braille printer.

To make a Braille printer for the masses, do-it-yourself assembly is key. The young inventor built seven different models before settling on one that was able to print the six dots in a desired sequence according to Braille grade 1 standards.

“I am not visually impaired; I am a sighted, 13-year-old eighth grader… I always closed my eyes and used my fingers to feel the bumps on the paper,” he writes. The building instructions and software are open source, which will provide a low-cost solution for the visually impaired community.
