The Embossing Braille Printer by Danni Luo helps the visually challenged identify different items that might seem similar in touch, smell or taste.

The Braille Printer has voice recognition and allows users to input information about different items and then prints a small braille label, describing the items. The user then pastes the labels onto items such as pill bottles to ensure they can always identify it.

Implications - It is very often the case that a company or business tailors their products to appeal to a singular group of consumers. As a result, they close themselves off from other groups of consumers. A company can maximize its profits by designing products that can be used by a wide range of consumers, regardless of the dissimilarities that may exist across the group.
