Unicode has a dedicated block for Braille characters
(Braille Patterns).

No need for a codec for the position and/or rotation
of characters, it's a question of rendering engine
and/or fonts.

You can experiment it with a TeX unicode engine.

--------

Sometimes, Python already allows to save space:

>>> 0and 1
0
>>> 0 and 1
0
