BrailleDoodle inventor: Tablet for the blind is a ‘revolutionary’ teaching tool
A teacher at the New York Institute for Special Education in the Bronx says his invention can be a revolutionary teaching tool for students around the world.
Daniel Lubiner invented a tablet for the blind and visually impaired that will help them perform necessary tasks in schools.
"It all started about five years ago when I was told that I was going to be teaching art for the blind and low vision, and I can tell you honestly, I was scared," Lubiner told News 12.
It didn't take long for him to see that the students needed more resources. That's when he invented BrailleDoodle and the TouchPad Pro.
According to the BrailleDoodle website, the devices allow students who are visually impaired to create touchable drawings and learn braille at the same time.
Lubiner says those who learn braille are far more likely to find employment than those who do not.
Lubiner is hoping to bring the BrailleDoodle to the market by September and the TouchPad Pro in the next three years.
