The BecDot

This is a first cut at the look and feel for the Braille teaching toy I am making for Rebecca.  More about the idea here in this link,  I still have not officially disclosed how she will interact with it but the idea is to make a fun toy that she can use to learn braille.


The colors were chosen to provide as much contrast as possible to help with low vision.

I am not 100% settled on the name yet so if you have any thoughts on alternative names I would love to see them in the comments.

The next part I will be working on is designing the mounting for the internal components.
