Viral Video of the Week: Brilliant Kids Make Us Feel Dumb

I’m feeling pretty insecure about my brainpower lately. And, after watching these videos, you’ll probably feel that way too. Sorry about that.

Our first video shows Shubham Banerjee, a California seventh grader, building a Braille printer using only a $350 LEGO set and his own brilliance. And, sure, $350 is pretty expensive for a LEGO set, but if you use it to build a Braille printer, it’s actually a sweet deal. Your standard Braille printer will cost you upwards of $2,000.

And while building a Braille printer out of LEGOS is incredible, Alexis Martin has Banerjee beat. Sorry, Shubham. The three year-old (!!!!!!) from Arizona recently tested for an IQ above 160 and is the youngest member ever to be admitted to Mensa. She also taught herself Spanish using her parents’ iPad.

What’d you do today?
