    An Australian doll maker is aiming to change the way people look at dolls. Tree Change Movement is giving second-hand dolls like Bratz with less makeup, fewer body-hugging clothes, and more realistic features.

    5. Teenage inventor starts own company to help the blind
    Thirteen-year-old boy Shubham Banerjee of California started his own company, Braigo Labs (Braigo = Braille and Lego), to develop low-cost machines to print Braille, the tactile writing system of the visually impaired. Shubham built a Braille printer using a Lego robotics kit for the school’s science fair, and was surprised to find out how expensive Braille printers were. He updated his “science fair project” into a more sophisticated model using a regular printer and the newly-released Intel computer chip, and it can now translate electronic text into Braille. He is the youngest entrepreneur to receive venture capital (the money invested for financial stake in the company). (yahoo.com)
