IIT Student Innovates Portable Braille Printer 20 times cheaper (

Kaviraj Prithvi from IIT Guwahati, the founder of Prithvi Systems and Innovations, invented a braille printer, ‘Tactall’, that won an award from Startup India.

“Even the basic braille printers, which are mostly imported, cost between $2,000 – $3,000 (~Rs 1,50,000 – 2,50,000). The majority of special schools in India run on a tight budget which makes it impossible for them to import printers. After the school visit, I felt an urge to fill this gap and help the students in any possible way,” says Kaviraj, the final year Physics student.
