not braille

anonymous asked:

Who'd leave a little prank note for The Host reading "If you read this out loud, you're a dummy butt :)" and how does The Host get them back for this immature prank.

If it’s not Bingiplier who leaves little dumb notes around for the Host to find (translated to Braille just to be extra) then I’ll eat my trumpet.

The Host usually lets it slip because it’s kind of funny, but on occasion he’ll convince one of the Googles to take his skateboard

Now this is genius. Dot Inc. has invented a Braille smart watch that helps  visually impaired people check social media, view images, read texts, check the weather, read news and control smart homes.

“If you get a call, it vibrates, then you can check who is calling you.” -Eric Kim, CEO of Dot Inc.

“You can get on Google Maps and find the nearest Starbucks. Boom there it is.” -Arturo Espinosa, Braille teacher.

Dot Inc’s watch has 24 touch sensors and uses electro-dynamic cells to transmit information. The Bluetooth wathc uses an app to translate text and images into Braille. While the user reads through content, the display refreshes new letters.

The watch debuted in April for $290, and it already has over 100,000 pre-orders. There are 285 million visually impaired people around the globe. In an interconnected world, this watch isn’t leaving anyone behind.

We’re living in an era of newfound creativity thanks to 3-D printing. The tool’s recent popularity has spurred incredible works of art — everything from custom-made shoes to a 3D-printed house — but the real excitement may lie in how this tech could transform the quality of our lives.

She had a braille pin.

He mocked a disabled reporter.

Tell me again how they were the same.

I remember being told that love is blind, so I ran my fingers through the creases of your flaws and slowly read your darkest secrets by stroking over the scars on your skin like braille. I’ve read all of your hidden chapters and you by far are still my favourite story.

Okay unpopular opinion time.

As somebody who knows a blind-from-birth person, it’s kinda pissing me off that people are acting like the Doctor going blind is tragic. It might suck for him for awhile because he’s not used to living that way, but ffs if he’s taught how to do things the blind way as opposed to the sighted way and borrowed other people to be his eyes when vision is necessary then not much would have to change.

If the Doctor can memorize a map in a few seconds, I doubt it’d take him long to learn just about every form of Braille or raised reading material for blind people all over the universe.

Imagine if the TARDIS made him a sonic white cane that could do all the cool stuff his sonic screwdriver could do and more. Imagine it having a “homing” signal where the cane will gently tug him back to the TARDIS if there’s danger or if he gets ‘lost’ on an adventure. (And imagine him having to resist it and be all “be quiet, you!”)

Disability doesn’t have to be tragic, y’all.
