This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…

i can’t stop imagining an AU where everything is the same except Bill has no “master plan” and is just a chaotic-neutral demon who does dubious things (like still invading Stan’s mind for Gideon, oops), but finds the twins amusing as hell and sticks around them long enough to actually start liking them. he prefers being their size, wearing anything Mabel makes for him (especially his sweater), forgetting about the thing called “personal space”, and stealing their clothes for nests
complete with weird demon habits and lack of social skills. at least his penchant for being a destructive mischievous shit kinda of works with 12 year olds

Feminism INCLUDES intersectionality. If you purposefully exclude colored women, disabled women, trans women, muslim women, poor women, and queer women, you are NOT a feminist. If you choose to ignore the intersectionalities that shape a womans life such as her race, gender identity, sexuality, and class, you are NOT a feminist. If your feminist agenda ONLY touches upon western rape culture and sex positivity, you are NOT a feminist.
