How did we come up with the idea of the Braille sensor
One of the co-founders has an aunt who is suffering from a mental disease, which prevents her from seeing properly and it is very difficult to have someone with her all the time to help her. We decided to do something about it. Also our school is located next to a retirement home; some of their residents have trouble seeing and can’t read. Other residents have dementia; these people may have forgotten how to read and may not be able to learn again. This helped us to start thinking how can we help all these people. We then began our research and found that there is not many options for people in these situations, this is when we thought of our idea, a device that can read braille.
