E-Reader Virtual Brailler could bring so much solace to the blind. Wish Helen Keller was alive.
Childhood just passes by playing around and learning new things, however, have you caught wind about somebody who invented a solar boat at the age of 8, a 3D Printer at the age of 13, and an e-reader for the blind at the age of 15. Meet Angad Daryani who is currently a 22-year-old inventor and social entrepreneur from Mumbai, India. He is a school dropout who ended up inventing new technologies by applying new methods and techniques.
A Hobby Turned into Passion
As a kid, Angad was exceptionally inquisitive about various advancements which caused him to create hobby projects like water level detectors, Robot wars at IIT- Fest and solar-powered boats,s, etc. He loved art and painted his canvas with electrons. At 15 years old, he chose to leave school and selected homeschooling during his ninth and tenth grades. He got an honour for showing magnificent entrepreneurial abilities and for a technological contribution towards the poor society and he also gave a TED Talk at the age of 18. He further continued to do the international baccalaureate diploma program at Jamnabai Narsee international school in Mumbai.
Angad had begun a club which is known as the Makers asylum in Mumbai.
This helps the youth to come together, share ideas, and experiment. He started two companies that are shark Kits and shark bot.
Shark Kits: This is a Do-it-yourself kit company that gives advancements at a lower cost for fledglings to begin creating their innovations. They aim to gather and build more developers who can comprehend the current world issues and come up with ideas and solutions. Every individual is provided with the kit and starts finding out about the different parts, their capacities, and their working. This can kick them off to think imaginatively and concoct their own ideas and innovations.
Shark Bot: It is Angads dream project to build a 3D printer, which will be affordable, and reliable. They decided to build a robust by using their sound engineering knowledge and just about 3 years of examination work and advancement. They even had to shut down for a year as they did not meet their expectations and goal. But the upcoming product is assured to hit the market.
