Team Tactile

TeamTactile

Team Tactile is a team of six MIT STEM majors and recent winners of the Lemelson-MIT Student Prize for their print-to-Braille creation. Chandani Doshi, Grace Li, Jessica (Jialin) Shi, Chen (Bonnie) Wang, Charlene Xia, and Tania Yu created a device that uses an internal camera to read lines of text, and then converts it into Braille characters, allowing the user to read anything. No more costly books or dependence on text-to-audio capabilities. Here’s a pretty cool article about it that came across my radar via The Future Crunch.
