Child prodigies make good headlines. So does Angad Daryani. Except, he makes much more than just that. At the age of 8, Angad built his first robot and a solar-powered boat soon after. He created the prototype of India’s first homegrown 3D printer at the age of 13. One of his prototype 3D printers is being used at the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai. And at 15, he is launching Virtual Brailler, a e-reader for the blind. He runs his own DIY kit company. He calls himself a “Maker“, who is passionate about solving real-world problems.
