Isn't it just brilliant? I love the idea of tactile maths and the idea of using to help the blind is great.

It also makes you stand in awe at the brains of some people on this planet. Morin, can't see, and he teaches mathematics in Princeton. Hawking, who has no mobility now, can solve intense mathematical equations in his head. It's almost worth the sacrifices to be able to see what these two see.
