12-year-old Shubham Banerjee, a Santa Clara 7th grader, demos "Braigo," a Braille printer, which he made out of a Lego MINDSTORMS EV3 set, at the Build 4 Good Robo Challenge at the EMP Museum's Sky Church on Thursday, April 10, 2014. Seven local companies were asked to follow Banerjee's lead and create a robot that could help solve problems. Banerjee, who started wondering about how blind people read after seeing a flyer asking for donations to the blind, decided to make a lower-cost Braille printer out of Legos. Basic models can retail at $2,000.
