Re: different ways to emboss braille

@CAE_Jones
I believe your referring to the [Braigo] printer, which was a school project using lego mindstorm pieces by Shubham Banerjee, then 13'ish around 2014. He had been funded by Intel and has been working on the next commercial version of the printer as some kind of cloud connected media center, retailing for around 350$. Their site does have an app though that claims to allow you to upload documents you can share and have converted into braille. Like the [Blitab] tablet though there's no word on a product release, little if any progress updates.

The [Canute] looks like their finally moving into production though, says they began finalizing pre-production testing in March 2018. They don't give a final price but say it should be something like a new iphone, around 2-3£ per character with 360 characters, so 720£-1080£? You can [Contact] them to register your interest.

I think though if your looking for a good embosser you should look into 3D printers, since they'll also have a lot more utility. The cheaper ones which require some assembling can go for around 150-200$ and use cheap plastic filament, can do braille and illustrations, or pretty much whatever kind of object you'd like. The only downside is that you have to use a program called a Slicer to carve up 3D models into printer instructions, and they aren't terribly accessible. Its one of the things thats on my to do list to look into, heh. Well, at least there's the [3Doodler 3D Start] pen, they seem to making some initiatives to help get them into the hands of educators and classrooms.
