12-year-old boy makes braille lego printer [PHOTO\VIDEO], A 12-year-old has invented a low cost braille printer made out of Lego bricks.

Shubham Banerjee, a California seventh grader, created the braille printer out of Lego for a science fair project.
Braille printers go for about $2,000 but Banerjee`s comes in at around $350. He calls his invention the BRAIGO - as in braille with Lego.

Intel executives were so impressed with Shubham’s printer that in November they invested an undisclosed sum in his startup.

Intel officials believe he’s the youngest entrepreneur to receive venture capital, money invested in exchange for a financial stake in the company.
