This 13-Year-Old Inventor Has His Own Companyâ€¦Here's The LEGO Creation That Started It
Shubham Banerjee was building a science project when things drastically changed in his life. At the time, he was 12-years-old and messing around with hisÂ LEGO robotics setÂ trying toÂ come up with ideas for the science fair when he discovered unsettling statistics about the affordability of braille readers for the blind. Fewer than 10% can actually afford the equipment they need.
Obviously he took home first prize, but that's not the most important part of the story.
Wedler has now come on board to be the advisor of Banerjee's new company,Â Braigo Labs. Yes, a 13, year old has a successful company speared headed by his invention. This story is quite incredible.
"Inventors have been attempting to do what Shubham has done with Braille embossers for many years."
He was able to cut down the cost of equipment that typically costs $2,000 and up to just $200. Pretty genius, right?
Which by the way, he is young and still enjoys football and friends who are apparently "chill" about the fact he now has his own company.Â
