World Braille day


Personally I had never heard of it, but it sounds interesting. World Braille Day! Louis Braille, was born on january 4. Manneken Pis in Belgium puts on his suit of a blind boy going to school. Braille is not a language, but a way to write, a system of six points in relief. It is a very unique system, and is very important for blind and people who can't see well to connect to the world around them. Braille is of this time and stays very modern. You can use it on a smartphone or computer. When you are blind, you can even read texts on the screen. LEGO developed Braille Bricks, this lego in the toolkit has the shape of a normal lego brick, but the way the relief is on the bricks is according to the numbers and figures of the braille alphabet.
