Microsoft investing in Santa Clara teenager's braille printer

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- Microsoft is making a big investment into a Bay Area teenager's science fair project.

ABC7 News first brought you the story of Shubham Banerjee last January. The Santa Clara eighth-grader made a braille printer from his Legos robotics set.

Now Microsoft wants in.

The tech giant is helping Banerjee develop a more robust braille printer using a windows tablet.

Banerjee already has seed funding from Intel, where his dad works.
