Dare To Dream And Have The Courage To Follow It!!

#17. This is what they call a Master Builder.

This one seems inspired by the Lego movie. The movie gave us an age old message of believing in ourselves in an innovative way with an equally ingenious concept.

This young guy seems have done just that. He not only seems inspired by it but also implemented the concept effectively for a very good cause.

A thirteen-year old boy, Shubham Banerjee, has come up with a Braille printer using his Lego robotics kit for a school science fair project after learning that current printers cost at least $2,000 – too expensive for most blind readers.

The California eighth-grader has launched a company to develop low-cost machines to print Braille, the touch-based writing system for the visually impaired.After his Lego-based printer won numerous awards and enthusiastic support from the blind community, Shubham started Braigo Labs this past summer with an initial $35,000 investment from his dad.

In November, tech giant Intel Corp. invested an undisclosed amount of venture capital in Shubham’s startup, making him perhaps the youngest entrepreneur to receive such funding.

It’s never too early to start. Nor is it ever too late to start. Act now. Believe in yourself.
