“A Low-Tech innovation represents any invention that responds to a real human need while being easily comprehensible, financially affordable, and inclusive. The innovation, which is made from resources that are as locally available as possible, should support a circular economy by having low environmental impacts throughout its life cycle, while simultaneously favoring energy efficiency and maximum viability.”

How to build?

This low-tech tool consists of three different components:

1) Ready-for-emboss plexi sheet used for the letters.

2) Embossing too.

3) Braille Alphabet and Number Sheet.

The following video is a step-by-step guide to building the Braille Embosser and will include a section on how to create the plexi letters and one on how to assemble the embosser.

How to use it?

1) Choose the letter you want to reproduce from the pattern guide.

2) Place your plexi sticker on the tray with the tape facing up towards the nail.

3) Follow the pattern in section 2 to see which circles you should emboss.

4) Line up the circle you want to emboss with the hole in the tray.

5) Press your embosser down with enough pressure to emboss without
piercing.

6) Repeat the pattern to emboss all the circles you need to form your letter! Once the letter is ready, peel the adhesive protection and the protective sheet to have a polished clean letter.

And that’s it!
