With only a $350 Mindstorms LEGO set and a head full of smarts, California seventh grader Shubham Banerjee built a fully functioning Braille printer, normally priced upwards of $2,000.
The invention, which Banerjee explains in the tutorial video above and is affectionately named Braigo, is on its early stages and operates at a slower pace than the average Braille printer, but really, what have you done lately?
Banerjee spoke with NPR regarding his device, claiming that in the future he'd like to aim toward a career as either an "engineer, surgeon, or scientist," but he was leaning toward becoming an engineer. The Braigo printer has a Facebook page for updates, and it's replete with heartwarming commentary from Banerjee's family and friends. The kids are all right, after all.
