Baibhav suggests having a special toilet system designed for blind people, which can guide them using voice commands. The tiles could be designed to facilitate movements. The faucets could also be linked to an artificial intelligence system for controlling the flow of water.

He likes to read story books, and has a special interest in aeroplanes. He visualises himself as an aeronautical engineer in the future.
