Analog Angle

Keeping it simple still a good idea, for both problem and solution

Knowing many blind people and many cane users, there is only one navigational technical aid that has passed the test of time: the white cane. Over the years there have been several such addons come and gone, such as the laser cane and other acoustic based devices. A friend whose job includes evaluating tech aids of all types keeps me up to date on them. And still the white cane rules.

What all this shows, at least to me, is to know what has worked, what can work and then be prepared for the best idea to flop for no known reason. All that said, I hope that this device sticks (no pun intended).

Nice insights as always.  I'm also a big fan of Kidder's book.
