Welcome to the Wednesday Roundup for August 28, 2013 brought to you by Fedora Outlier, LLC. In this issue of the Wednesday Roundup we are bringing to you articles about Apple iOS rumors , science research, and stories about individuals who have triumphed over blindness. Grab that favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy.
A new color iPhone 5 you say? The latest rumor about the iPhone to be announced on September 10 is that there will be a new color available. Last year the most popular color was the white iPhone. It will be interesting to see what they come up with this time.
This technology is moving faster than my mind can wrap around it. A 3D capability to manipulate graphics on an iPad….wow,…what is next? The 3D printers have been around for a while, but this new use sounds very interesting.
More research is coming to find new technologies for the blind and visually impaired community. The numbers of people in the world who are blind or visually impaired is astronomical. This will be one more way that we can become better equipped to go to work, enjoy a full life, and be a part of our community.
Can you imagine the transition from being a sighted physicist to being a totally blind physicist? This man did just that. He had to find a way to make material accessible to him, and now wants to use his knowlege to help students as well as other blind people in fields that use graphs. He continued in his capacity as a physicist until he retired.
What an awesome use of medical technology. In this case, a GPS guided the doctors to the exact spot on the lungs and they were able to get a 3D picture of the affected area. The GPS allowed the doctor to go in and biopsy a specific spot on the patient’s lung, thereby preventing a longer surgery time and a more invasive procedure.
This young pianist wants to share his gift with the world. The pianist , 14 years old, has been blind since he was 4 months old. He began playing lullabies at the age of 2 on a toy piano. This just goes to show you, that gifts are in all of us, and we just have to recognize them. What a wonderful role model for our children as well as adults with visual disabilities. For that matter, he is a great role model for all of those who don’t realize their abilities.
It has been our pleasure to bring you these stories. Go to our website and find more interesting reading and content. Remember that I will be posting unique and fascinating articles each and every Wednesday in the roundup, so don’t miss a single one. Enjoy the rest of your week.
