Bec-Dot, the toy to learn braille

Rebecca is a three year old girl who was born deaf. Their parents had to learn the sign language to communicate with her, and when they did, they learned that Rebecca suffered from Usher syndrome, a rare disease that also affects vision. That is, her daughter will also be blind before reaching 10 years.

As a result of this dramatic situation they came across another reality: there are very few toys designed for children with visual impairments, and no one to learn to read with the Braille system. Faced with this scenario, the father of Rebecca, who is a computer engineer, decided to create one. The result is Bec-Dot, a rectangular box that teaches children to read in Braille using figures, letters and pieces of colors. The toy is printed in 3D and is linked to an app that allows you to program the words to learn.

The toy has won the Not Impossible Limitless Award, awarded to one of the most important electronics fairs in the world. Now the goal is to produce and sell at a very low price so that children with vision problems can play on the planet.
