This came to me through my membership in the AER and you "techies" might be
interested in this new development.  I am not sure how it works and I will
have to check it out but in the meantime here it the information and link to
the story in the Associated Press.

Hi All,


Interesting article.

Assistive device wins Palestinian girls a trip to international science fair
Three Palestinian students who attend a U.N.-funded girls school are taking
their invention of a beeping walking stick to detect obstacles for people
with visual impairments to Intel's international youth science fair next
month in California. The students' invention remedies a design flaw in other
laser canes by using infrared sensors to detect holes in the ground.
