    MIT students develop device that could make labeling easier for the visually impaired. Product could be on the market next year.

    A device that started out as a class project last fall is moving rapidly toward becoming a commercial product that could make the lives of millions of visually impaired people a bit easier.

    ...

    Over the summer they conducted field tests around the country with 25 potential users of the product, giving each about a half-hour to work with the device.

    "Blind people really wanted to see this product on the market," says Karina Pikhart '09, who is CEO of the new company.

    I doubt that anyone would take offense. W's 2 nieces and nephew are all blind (RP), and use that expression all the time. They'll say stuff like 'see you tomorrow' or 'I watched the football game yesterday'. Nobody thinks twice about it.

    There's humour to be found everywhere, which is fine as long as it isn't meant maliciously. Like the stand-up comic who mentioned that drive-through bank machines have Braille on the buttons...

    After all, blind people do have an imagination.
