Why do we really need a special cup for the blind and visually impaired anyway?! I'm as blind as they get and yet I've managed quite well with the same cups and glasses that (gasp) the sighted use.; and I'm not a fluke in this regard. I hope John explained blindness as it really is and not the way most of the sighted believe it to be.

: Hi there,
: 
: My name is Mu-Hua Cheng. I am currently taking a course at the University of Michigan where my group and I are designing a cup (either a drinking cup or a measuring cup) for the visually impaired and blind populations. We are searching for potential users of our product to interview about their experiences with assistive and non-assistive technologies related to pouring liquids. We are hoping to talk face-to-face, but are open to telephone conversations if this makes scheduling easier.
: 
: While we are interested in collecting data as early as possible (within the next couple weeks), our course runs until mid-December and we would certainly be interested in talking with as many potential users as we can throughout the semester. Ann Arbor residents are most convenient for face-to-face interviews, but a couple of my group members have cars so we may be able to venture out a little.
: 
: Contact me at the phone number or email listed below. Thanks so much in advance for your help.
