Lego has unveiled a new project aimed at helping blind children learn braille in a playful and engaging way.
The company has designed Lego “Braille Bricks.”
The bricks feature studs used for characters in the braille alphabet as well as printed characters allowing sighted people to read the bricks.
The final set will be comprised of 250 bricks covering the complete braille alphabet, numbers from 0 to 9, math symbols as well as interactive games.
The “Braille Bricks” are currently undergoing testing in schools and will officially launch in 2020.
