I had no idea they still use braille. I honestly thought most blind use screen readers.

How fast can blind people "read" braille anyway? The average human reads text at 800 wpm.

Nice printer, Shubham.

/g/ is probably the last board on 4chan to produce memes.

If that's nothing of value then pull my finger and fart in my ear.

>>52623121
are you actually retarded? You can't make 'a killing' selling a cheap item with a practically nonexistent market.
>>
>>52623121

The guy has 5 engineers, so he probably needs 1 admin. With other costs, you need to bring in about $850k per year to be successful. Assume he sells the product for $700 and pockets $350, he needs to sell 2.5k of these per year.
Now there are 200M blind people in the world. But more than 2/3 earn less than $1000 a month (66M). About 10% read braille (7M). Maybe half have something they could hook the printer up to (3.5M). Half already have an expensive braille printer (1.75M). Half prefer to use some sort of text to speech (875k) Half are buying a braille printer through insurance and don't care about price (440k). 10% never hear about your product (400k).
So your market is about 400k people. If a average consumer buys 2 in a 50 year lifetime, 16,000 printers are bought a year. I think I've been very generous with my assumptions, and the actual market size is much lower. But still the new product would need to capture over 20% of the world market to survive. And the market for braille is actually rapidly shrinking, not growing.

99% of these "child prodigy" stories are exactly that. The child of an engineer invents a new product, the child of a programmer develops some new algorithm or software, the child of a fashion designer is starting their own clothes line, the child of a world class musician is amazing at playing piano, etc. etc. It's parents forcing their passions on their kids or parents using kids to promote their own work.

i wonder why braile printers are so expensive?
must be all of those special components you need to punch fucking holes right?
no its because nobody fucking buys them.

What the fuck. I speak at 200 wpm. Are people really incapable of reading faster than listening?

Is Lego really that expensive? I live maybe 25mins from the factory in Denmark and they have a "box" with just random bricks in them, for like 100$. It's a pretty big box too.

well I made https://www.moviemagnet.net so that at least counts for something. right, anons? anons...

Apparently. The closest i know of anyone reading that fast is a local savant. Autistic guy that can't tie his shoes and yells instead of just speaking normally.

Holy shit I am way slower than I thought. I got 330 wpm with 82% comprehension and I believed the guy that said humans read at 800 wpm.

>average human reads text at 800 wpm
lol no, more like 400 wpm if they're paying attention

>How fast can blind people "read" braille anyway?
I read at ~500-600wpm comprehensive, which I guess is pretty decent for someone who can see.
The lady friend on the other hand reads braille at like ~350-450 wpm which is supposedly pretty fast. But she's an avid novel reader, so it's not too surprising.

yes lego is expensive
and its shit now they add way too many new elements. this week i saw a model of a car that had the whole front, windshield and doors as a single piece. fucking garbage.
technic used to be top tier but all this studless construction is bullshit. fine you can build tighter with it but big fucking blank panels now? no studs anywhere at all? into the trash.
lego should use bricks for smooth sides and studs always on top OR specially made flat smooth pieces. not fucking studless technic transporter beds. gay as fuck.

It´s important to namedrop both Intel and Google in combination with ethnic whizkid ads so edu people know how to spend their yearly funding :^)

After eating his daily meal of Mountain Dew™ and Doritos™, Shubham asked his Intel™ dad how blind people read. "Google™ it", his Intel™ dad replied. Using his Intel™-based workstation with state of the art graphics by Nvidia™, Razer™ keyboard and optimized Microsoft™-operating system, Google™ pointed him in the right direction. Shubham used the Googled™ information to utilize Lego™ to create his revolutionary device that had no resemblance to Lego™ dot matrix printer projects. Invest in young minds today, invest in PepsiCo™, Intel™, Google™, Nvidia™ Razer™, Microsoft™ and Lego™. You aren´t a white privileged male CIS-gendered rapenazi shitlord, are you? :^)
