SANTA CLARA, Calif. — This is no typical toy story. It’s about a 13-year-old whiz kid Shubham Banerjee who built a printer for the blind, out of Legos. The 8th grader built the Braille printer with a Lego Mindstorm kit. It costs about $350. It didn`t take too long for Banerjee’s vision to take shape.
