Touchétech Labs Pvt Ltd (TTLPL) is the brain child of Paul D’souza who has been working on solving diverse problems for several years. His areas of interest have led to several innovations and inventions in the fields of plumbing, masonry, carpentry, metal work, precision machining, watch making, jewellery techniques, electrical and electronics, computers, optics, miniatures, aero-modelling and even embroidery in his younger days! He is passionately fond of antique restoration and has restored numerous antiques like furniture, machines, clocks, watches, curios etc.
The team at TTLPL is now working to put Touché ( the refreshable Braille display) on the market and reach out to as many visually impaired people as possible to ensure that the only form of literacy that they now have is not lost in time. Touché has been eight years in the making and was developed into a product as part of a collaboration between Paul and Sapient Razorfish’s Kepler Lab in little over a year. http://www.touche.world
The team at TTLPL at the moment consists of Paul D’souza as the Chief Technology Officer in charge of the production of Touché – the refreshable Braille display- as well as development of other ideas on the burner, and execution of the same!
Srinand Piedpet joins in as the person handling all the administrative stuff. Srinand has worked with a few companies and organisations, run a software company of his own with some class mates, learned life the hard way and come through smiling (most of the time!). Srinand is passionately fond of antiques , as is everyone on the team, and the only way we were able to recruit him as CEO, was to assure him that we were trying to restore and re-introduce vintage forms of technology!! Yashaswini, his wife, is silently working behind the scenes to propel us forward as his earlier obsession – the ‘grand old lady’ is now moving on her own steam! Read this article about them to give you an idea about the man and his main hobby! http://www.deccanherald.com/content/509758/a-date-grand-old-lady.html
