LEGO is launching an amazing project that will use the bumps on the popular bricks to help teach the Braille method to blind and visually impaired children.

"Blind and visually impaired children have dreams and aspirations for their future just as sighted children, They have the same desire and need to explore the world and socialize through play, but often face involuntary isolation as a consequence of exclusion from activities," CEO of the Lego Foundation,John Goodwin said.

“With this project, we are bringing a playful and inclusive approach to learning Braille. I hope children, parents, caregivers, teachers and practitioners worldwide will be as excited as we are.”

The bricks, will be compatible with Lego's wider collection, this means that friends and family members can play along.

The final LEGO Braille Bricks kit is expected to come out in 2020 and will be distributed free of charge to select institutions through participating partner networks in the markets.
