- #WhatIf You Could #Stop #Time?



If you had a #device #designed to #freeze time for #everything but you, #life wouldn't be anything like what you'd #expect. You wouldn't catch up on #sleep, or #rob a #bank while no one can stop you, or #cheat on an #exam.
Instead, you'd be left #blind, #deaf and #unable to #move a #single #muscle. How can time #freezing go so #wrong?

Therefore hear the Word of The Lord and give heed, for thus says The Lord to this most wicked generation, to the last of these kingdoms of men: You are maimed!

Blind people don't accuse the sighted of engaging in a #conspiracy against them, do they? This strange story they are told. There are people who have this trick called "sight". And they can do these things that we can't do. They can "drive" to "other places". And so on. How would you know that someone wasn't just sticking you in a box that they were shaking up and down? And when they roll down the window someone is turning on a fan to blow air in their face. That they weren't playing some sort of elaborate prank? In time, to a reasonable mind, the evidence will pile up that the sighted are not lying. And over time, the blind are able to build accurate models of the world comparable to the models that the sighted build.

How would you prove to a blind-from-birth person that you are not lying about this realm of light? Apparently, it happens.

It seems to me that if those who claim to have some "sense" experience of what is called the #... Show more...

Donald Trump to become godfather/namesake to blind amphibian


The name ‘Dermophis donaldtrumpi’ was chosen by the boss of a sustainable building materials firm which paid thousands at an auction for the right.
The small creature is blind and has an ability to bury its head in the ground. These features EnviroBuild’s Aidan Bell said match the US leader’s opinion on climate change.

Sounds like a good choice to me; well done. I'm sure Donnie likes the idea to become preserved in nature, since he cares so much about it. Still I wonder what this blind animal might think about the idea that it is named after the worst president the United States so far ever had. :D

Ask HN: Resources for blind developers and sysadmins?


Two weeks ago, I woke up one morning with slightly blurry vision and a big, opaque, dark circle getting in the way of many things (especially if I close my right eye). Visited the doctor and I'm told that I have macular degeneration in my right eye and a retina problem in my left eye. It's surprising because I'm not yet 40. Doctor said I won't go blind and prescribed me some medicine for an initial treatment. I'm now looking into treatment options and researching this. I am supposed to go back to the doctor soon for a checkup. The dark circle has never left me; in fact, it's now been joined by a transparent, shimmering circle.

I'm not worried about going blind based on the doctor's opinion, but I am concerned that I will have to deal with long-term vision issues. Currently, I cannot read the text on my screen if I close my right eye, as the dark circle gets in the way of everything.

It left me with an interesting question. I'd rea... Show more...

Reiner hat nach einer missglückten Rückenoperation vor drei Jahren sein Augenlicht plötzlich verloren und musste sein Leben komplett von vorn beginnen. Mit dem Blindenstock laufen lernen, essen, trinken, kochen, eine Straße überqueren, sich orientieren und die Blindenschrift benutzen. All das hat er im Berufsförderungswerk in Düren gelernt. Hinter dem Namen verbirgt sich eine Art Internat, in dem Sehbehinderte und Blinde Hilfe bekommen. Hier will man ihnen neuen Lebensmut vermitteln, hier lernen sie ihren Alltag zu bewältigen und es gibt spezielle Ausbildungsangebote. Der Film zeigt, wie Menschen, die nicht von Geburt an blind sind, mit ihrem Schicksal umgehen, nicht verzweifeln, sondern zurück in ein neues Leben finden. Autor/-in: Marion Försching

Reprogrammable braille could be the future of e-readers for the blind


Braille books are big. Dauntingly so. For example, when Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was translated into the system, it was over 1,000 pages across 14 volumes of thick paper. Well, researchers at Harvard have taken a big step into making this a thing of the past with reprogrammable braille.

The idea was to create an information storage system that could be manipulated at will. And, weirdly, the scientists from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences were influenced by a fruit bowl when designing it.

Basically, it’s is a thin, curved elastic shell on which braille-indents can be made with a stylus. Importantly, these indents can remain after the force creating them has been removed. In many ways, it’s similar to how braille books are produced now, but with this method, the text can be changed at will.

What separates this from the braille e-readers that already exist – such as the BLITAB – is the characters can be sup... Show more...

James Comey Turned Blind Eye to Rogue Informant, According to Reports
 
Does clock sometimes seem to have stopped to you for a second? It's called chronostasis and is caused by saccadic masking - our #brain filling in missing "frames" during a quick #eye movement at which we're effectively #blind and won't detect stimuli such as light flashes. Akinetopsia is an inability to perceive #motion and can be triggered by some #drugs and even #antidepressants (from personal experience I can confirm #weird stuff going on in my brain sometimes when the dosage changes). Critical fusion threshold defines an "FPS" of one's vision and this #openaccess #paper uses it to compare how fast the #perception of different #species is (e.g. #dogs run on higher #FPS than us? #Cats are mentioned too but for different lighting conditions, so cannot compare).

Watching #spongebob, drinking #coffee and reading #wikipedia :) How is your #morning?
