Here is the latest installment in my blog talking about the history of my wheelchairs. It talks about what I did before I got my first wheelchair and includes a YouTube video of me as an infant up to a year and a half old. Talks about my first wheelchair and some of the adventures I had in it.

In my last installment I talked about why I am shopping for a new wheelchair. I said I was going to take a look back at other wheelchairs I've had over the years. Chris Young B.W.C. (Before Wheel Chair). I never was able to walk or even crawl as an infant or toddler. I guess I didn't toddle at ...

Wow, this is a big advancement for wheelchairs. Swiss Engineers have created a wheelchair that could finally mean ending the search for accessible ramps.
The Scalevo wheelchair (pictured) was built by engineering students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. It uses rubber tracks to pull itself up staircases backwards.

Nice post +Braille Works
 
"Here’s a test for you. Take out your smartphone, close your eyes and try to perform a few simple tasks: send an email, read and respond to a text, take a decent picture. I’ll do the same.

Okay, that was impossible. But now you know just a little bit of what the iPhone and other touch screen devices are like to use for the visually impaired."

The American Foundation for the Blind just recognized Apple for its work on its VoiceOver accessibility feature, which works on iOS, OS X and Apple Watch OS.

"UD, which is gaining in relevance as the population ages, is “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design,” writes architect Ron Mace of the Center for Universal Design at North Carolina State University."

As a universal designer myself, I cannot agree more with this article! 
UD is the only accessible and sustainable way to design for the future populations!

Cool use of touch technology for the visually impaired.
Color is a vital part of communication, and for the 285 million visually impaired people in the world, that presents be a challenge. But a Portuguese designer has invented a Braille-like language that could help those very people “see” colors by touching raised shapes affixed to objects.

The #wheelchair gets a makeover.
The wheelchair gets a makeover—and a new name. Personal mobility devices are easier to maneuver and more flexible. Motorized versions can climb stairs and move over snow and trails.

A number of big milestones are coming in my life. The biggest one is on July 12, 2015 I will celebrate my 60th birthday. I've asked my sister Carol to organize a big party because I want to acknowledge what a big milestone it is since I was not expected to live very long when I was a child.

That is one pathetic map! 
Hey, so, TfL isn't the only city transport authority doing some pretty cool things with maps these days. RATP, its Parisian equivalent, has produced its own plan-interactif. There are all sorts of exciting things you can do with this baby. You can use it to plan your journey:

If you ever wondered how Braille works, Divine writer Bernadette Lancefield explains it, and then ponders whether new technology has made it irrelevant.
