Buddy and Other Intrigued Listers:

I have reached out to the developers of the WalkPro and have secured an
interview with their sales manager on my Internet radio program this coming
Tuesday, May 16. As usual, the interview will be live and callers are
welcome. The show airs live from 8:00-10:00 PM on KJSC Radio
(kjscradio.com), with the interview starting at 9:00 Eastern. I'll post a
reminder to this and other lists as the time of the broadcast draws nearer.

As a sidenote, I, like many of you, have always been skeptical about
high-tech gadgets which purport to "replace" the good old white cane. Haptic
shoes, bionic eyes, and the like have always turned me off a bit, interested
in technology though I am. However, I've got to hand it to these guys.
They're interested enough in reaching out to the blind community that they
readily agreed to my offer of an interview, even after I told them we would
invite callers to ask questions and express concerns. So I'm certainly
willing to hear them out, and I hope many of you will tune in and
participate in the conversation.

Hi y'all,

Recall my note from last week about the Embro Walk Pro. This week, they've
posted a bunch more information on it:

So there's a bit more about how it works and what sort of feedback you can
expect, including a video that won't tell blind folks much. Still, lots of
descriptive text. 

If you're intrigued,

For $59 off the preorder of the Walk Pro, use this coupon code:

For $29 off the purchase of a Mini (which is in current production), use
this coupon code:

Yes, the page still says the earlybird price for the Walk Pro is $300, but
it should really say $300 off retail, or $1199. 

Yes, I still say their claims are pretty bold, and I, personally, won't be
tossing my cane or guide dog aside just yet, but these guys have some
interesting plans for this gadget.
