Braille Writer Designed By Undergraduates

The creativity of engineering undergraduates continues to amaze me!!!  Four undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) have developed a handheld Braille writer that they hope will be a less expensive (think $10) and more portable option for Braille writing than traditional typewriter or computer-type Braille writers.

Read the JHU Press Release here.

There is also a great article by Lynne Shallcross in the latest ASEE Prism Magazine (October 2006) about this.  The article is entitled “The Write Solution” and is on page 53.
