There is A Crisis in the Blind Community!

A 10% literacy rate* in rural areas is UNACCEPTABLE
and there is a direct correlation to these disturbing statistics:

“Would love this! Sadly, I am struggling to get braille instruction for my child. I think this would help me teach him. The BrailleDoodle can’t come out fast enough!” – Tammy Simpson M., Parent of Nathan, age 10

“As a TVI for over 33 years, I am very excited at the prospect of being able to work with the BrailleDoodle."

“How fun! I would definitely buy this for my son.” – Ashlyn Marie L., Parent of Gunner, age 7

Description
This is a GIF of someone drawing on the brailledoodle it's flipping over and someone starts doing braille

          The BrailleDoodle has an array of hundreds of holes on the doodle side. Each hole contains a smooth metal ball that can be pulled to the surface by a magnetic stylus. When the user erases by simply pushing the balls back down.

          The braille side of the BrailleDoodle is a place for learning and practicing braille. On this side, the top section contains examples and practice spaces for every letter, some symbols, and sight words. Unlike other devices, below are lines of 20 braille cells to practice words and sentences. This is the way one learns to read, not one letter at a time!

    More specialized covers/stencils allow students to learn Math braille, contractions, shapes, print letters, graphs, art, even braille in different languages!

“Nothing motivates children to learn like learning while playing.”

Development is complete.
With help from Creative Engineering, and Emox Inc. we now have a full-sized, working prototype! And soon we will have 200 BRAILLEDOODLE minis!
