An emerging LEGO product may revolutionize how blind children learn braille.
LEGO seems to have found a way to turn its traditional blocks — into a first-of-its-kind educational tool.
The goal is to potentially make learning braille more exciting and collaborative.
The LEGO Foundation’s project, LEGO Braille Bricks, aims to create stackable blocks with braille dots.
In addition to the dots, the blocks wil have printed letters, numbers and math symbols.
The pilot program aims to help blind children play their way to learning braille.
LEGO Braille Bricks are currently being tested in English, Norwegian, Danish and Portuguese.
And they will soon be tested in Spanish, French and German.
The Lego Foundation’s goal is to distribute Braille Bricks free of charge.
