Physically Seeing Braille

Yet another scientific development that I can link to Star Trek: we’re one step closer to Lt. Commander La Forge’s VISOR. Scientists at Second Sight have developed a device that will allow the visually impaired to stream braille directly onto their retinas. Second Sight already has a device called Argus II, which they call a […]

A 32 GB USB Drive as Big as a Dime

Back when I started using computers, I was using those horrible 5 1?4-inch black floppies to store up to 360Kb of data per disk. By comparasion with today’s standards, that seems awfully low, but back then, most software and games would fit on a single floppy. Fast forward 30 years, Sandisk, among with plenty of […]
