MIT finger device reads to the blind in real time
The FingerReader is a wearable device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people that require help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation. Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues. The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line.
MIT Media Lab researchers say the device can read books, restaurant menus, business cards and other texts.

+Sterling Yun - Hypothesis - Our moon is approx. 10^22 kg. Chandreskhar Limit (size of largest stable White Dwarf) = 10^30 kg. Size of smallest White Dwarf observed = 10^20 kg.  Progression goes from T-Tauri size Star ( our Sun) to Nova to Red Giant, to White Dwarf to a Moon of our size or Planetoid. Above Chandreskhar Limit, the progression is Large Star to Super Nova to Pulsar to Neutron Star to Black Hole.  Premise for this is that all Stars and Planet have at their core a naturally occurring fission reactor (GeoReactor, Dr. J. Marvin Herndon).

Maker Camp, Thursday, July 10th: Bike to the Future

Maker Camp Hangout LIVE featuring Austin Horse, Red Bull Pro Cyclist at 11am Pacific time.

Even among the rough-and-tumble breed of New York City bike messengers, Austin Horse stands out with his combination of speed, endurance and brains. When he’s not racing at breakneck speeds, he’s on the road with his clever mobile bike shop. He’ll share his vision of a bike-friendly metropolis and some tips on how to be street smart, and we’ll show you how to make your bike really shine this summer.

It's your turn to change the world
Introduction
Google Science Fair is an international, online science and technology competition that encourages students between the ages of 13 to 18 to be curious, ask questions, and perform science experiments to answer those questions. In partnership with 
Virgin GalacticLEGO Education, National Geographic, and Scientific American, Google invites these students to post their science projects online so that they may compete for prizes, scholarships, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

Google Science Fair 2014 launched on February 12. The project deadline for the competition is May 12.  The 90 Regional Finalists, Local Award winners and Scientific American Science in Action Award nominees will be announces in June.

Be inspired: Join weekly hangouts on air with Google Science Fair and the scientists and technologists that are changing the world. For the full schedule, click here
