[nabs-l] an idea for a 1 page braille display

I thought Dean Blazie was already investigating this idea?  Me, I like it,
but if there's already so much upkeep with keeping one row of cells clean, I
can't begin to imagine how much labor would need to go into repairing one
cell or section of the display.

Before we get all excited about Sarai's link, and company, 
project, I would 
ask if anyone has seen a prototype.

Ideas are great, but realistic ones are worth one's pursuit and energy.

If there really were the one page display for less than the 
cost of a used 
car, it would be out already. I don't think adaptive technology 
companies 
could keep the developments from unfolding right under our fingers.

Let's support work to develop useful, cheaper, and better 
technologies and 
fully investigate something before becoming spoke persons for unviable 
solutions.
