Congrats to Akshay!
Akshay Jaitly, SEM freshman, won the "Southwestern University of Texas STAR award", given to the best innovative project at The Dallas Science Fair 2016-2017, Dallas, as well as first place in Mechanical Engineering.
He did an independent Science project to help the Visually Impaired connect to the digital world.
Akshay created a keyboard that fits on one's fingertips. There are four “keys” on the right hand and eight on the left. Pressing the correct combination of the two makes the computer type a desired letter. He used materials from only the home depot and an arduino board so that it is easy to replicate.
He is pictured with his father.
