15-year-old Mumbai school dropout, Angad Daryani and his team, have been behind a number of innovations and inventions.
Daryani is the inventor of Virtual Brailler – called the Kindle for the Blind. The device converts digital text from Roman to braille in real time, thus enabling the blind user to read, without the use of a braille printer, which costs upwards of Rs 2,00,000. The device was built by Daryani and his team under mentoring and funding from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Daryan is also the inventor of SharkBot – the cheapest 3D printer in the country. Considering that 3D printers in the country are expensive, Daryani’s SharkBot 3D printer aims to make it accessible to the average person. While the cost of an imported 3D printer is anywhere between Rs 2.5 lakhs and Rs 10 lakhs, Daryani plans to make his SharkBot available at just Rs 20,000.
