After transforming his LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit into a braille printer for the blind, 12 year-old Shubham Banerjee is now receiving invitations from the White House. The seventh-grader was formally invited to join the ranks of notable world-class engineers and inventors at the White House’s first ever Maker Faire, celebrating brilliant minds creating for humanity. Typical braille printers run upwards of $2,000. However, Banjeree’s “Braigo” (braille + LEGO)—a completely open sourced design available to all—will put braille printing into the hands of those who typically can’t afford it. Not bad for someone who doesn’t even have a driver’s license.
