Students designed the 6dot Braille Labeler in SolidWorks. the 6dot is a low cost, low weight printer that can be used on all types of objects to assist those who are visually impaired. Now they are using KickStarter to raise 50K in 36 hours, they are close.
I first saw the 6dot Braille Labeler at Professor Dave Wallace’s MIT 2.009 Product Design finals a few years ago and invited the students to display their design at our SolidWorks World Product Showcase.
Engineering students from MIT and Stanford are now trying to form a company to print the 6dot Braille Labeler to market.
You can review their project and how it works at http://kck.st/n0AlY3 Good luck in obtaining funding. Marie
