12-year-old invents Braille printer using Lego set
The Braigo printer cost its inventor about $350, making it more affordable than other Braille printers that can retail for more than $2,000.
And because I seriously side-eye this Western journalism trend of never crediting and NAMING the actual inventors in the headlines (especially when they’re young POC)
this inventor’s name is Shubham Banerjee, and he is making his glorious design completely open source, publishing it online FREE of charge! Just remember this kid’s name before some crusty old white dude “innovates” his design and takes all the credit.
Franck Bohbot - This Game We Play, 2013
"This Game We Play is an ongoing project by French photographer Franck Bohbot. After moving to New York from France, he began to photograph basketball hoops of different neighborhoods to portray the streetball playgrounds of New York. Not even including one single person, Bohbot isolates the main focus, the hoop, and offers a view of the different atmospheres, colours and shapes of the city; different backdrops and styles of courts, rusted poles, and fresh paints. Shooting an architecturally interesting object, which is strongly bound in the context of its surroundings." [Transparent Cities]
