Da Nang Students Build Braille Printer

Two young inventors from Da Nang are showing off their prize-winning Braille printer at an exhibition in Japan this May.

Nguyen Thien Nhan and Dang Huynh Khanh Ly, first-year students at Da Nang University of Science and Technology, put together a low-cost Braille printer-embosser, according to VietnamNet. Composed of plastic and recycled materials, the one-kilogram invention uses needles and heat to punch raised bumps onto the paper. Since 2015, the printer has been revised several times, earning its authors a number of accolades at municipal and national competitions.

For the upcoming exhibition in Japan in May 2017, Nhan and Ly plan to finalize the prototype design to attract investors for large-scale production.
