Sight-impaired poet creates new seeing machine

From the CEC Smart Brief:

Poet Elizabeth Goldring, who has lost most of her sight due to juvenile diabetes, has teamed up with MIT students and a Harvard inventor to build an inexpensive, simple machine that helps people with badly damaged retinas see better. As part of the project, Goldring created a streamlined visual language that makes reading with the seeing machine easier and faster. The New York Times (free registration) (5/23)
