- LEGO is hoping to open a whole new world for blind and visually impaired kids.
- After a successful pilot program, the toy-maker is rolling out LEGO Braille Bricks.
- They're made so that the studs on top reflect individual letters and numbers in the Braille alphabet, but can also still click together with "regular" bricks.
- LEGO says all children should have equal opportunity to be creative.
- The first wave of Braille Bricks is ready to go in six languages, including English, French, and German.
