The Be-B is a conceptual toy that tries to teach children (blind or not) to learn braille. Designed by Danielle Pecora, a graduate of the Pratt institute, the Be-B utilizes sound and touch to further braille literacy.

The Be-B contains 26 magnetic pegs, one for each letter in the alphabet. One side is in Latin and the other in Braille. When the letters are matched correctly, a chime goes off which lets you know which letter you're touching. Could Be-B help to teach more and more people in their braille education?
