For his school science fair project, young Shubham unleashed his talents on mechanics in an attempt to build a braile printer for the blind, and it was a knock out success. A typical Braile Printer cost’s around £1300 ($2000), but Shubham put his together for only £319 ($500), and this success didn’t go unnoticed. Tech giant Intel appreciated his efforts and concern for the cost of equipment for the disabled, and have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into the teenagers brand new braile printer production company, Brailo Labs.

What was your biggest achievement when you were thirteen?
