This is a $ 5 sleep mask from Archee McPhee that makes it look like you have big old googly anime peepers. Unless you’re the woman in the picture, then it makes you look like you’re Lindsay Lohan passed out with her eyes open. Always dreamed of making sweet, 2-D love to the chicks from your favorite anime series? Just ask your girlfriend to wear one and role play! “Girlfriend?” Right, put it on your love doll.
Thanks to PYY, who told me if you fall asleep with a sleep mask on and earplugs in you’ll wake up thinking you’re dead. I’m going to try it!

Smartphones have made juggling multiple single-purpose gadgets a thing of the past for many, but the blind and visually impaired often use a raft of devices built with eyes-free use in mind. Qualcomm and Project Ray, however, are aiming to consolidate phone calls, text messaging with voice read-out, navigation, object recognition, audio book reading and more for the visually impaired in a system built on an off-the-shelf Android phone. To navigate the smartphone, users leverage a handful of simple finger movements that can be started at any point on the handset’s touch screen. Voice prompts and vibration provide feedback to users, and the UI adapts to usage patterns and preferences. Currently, Ray devices have access to Israel’s Central Library for the Blind and are being tested by 100 folks in the country. For the full lowdown, head past the break for the press release.

Vision renovation has deservedly been the subject of much analysis over the years, but the current advance detailed by an international team of experts provides perhaps the most basic and cheapest course to achieving it. A chemical called AAQ (acrylamide-azobenzene-quaternary ammonium) has been injected into the eyes of blind mice and shown to restore their vision a minimum of partly– evidence of their renewed photosensitivity can easily be seen in the pupillary response demonstration online video below. Small amounts of AAQ can easily produce this result for a couple of hours at a time, making it a rather less extreme method than alternatives like stem cell therapy or synthetic implants. Better models of the chemical are already in screening that can extend its …

Skipping on the LTE, HD IPS screen or dual-processor is usually not a recipe that will land your phone on the pages of Engadget. But, these LG-LU2700Ss are not just any unspectacular flip phone. The handset has been specially modified for use by the blind and visually impaired. The manual is printed in braille and, rather than require the constant mashing of buttons, the phone is controlled primarily through voice commands. 2,000 of the devices were given away as part of the company’s donation program. Now if only they would mass produce them, LG would earn some serious cred.

This is a video of a blind man going for a spin in Google’s self-driving car. Why does it have a steering wheel and rear-view mirror if it drives itself? No clue, I feel like you should have haggled with the car salesman a little more. Dammit, I don’t WANT pedals and I’m not gonna pay for them! The car is pretty impressive and dude even swings by a Taco Bell drive-thru for lunch because you don’t have to be able to see to appreciate a burrito. You do have to be able to taste though, so go easy on the flaming cocktails.
Hit the jump for “some of the best driving I’ve ever done”.

Sometimes it feels all too easy to succumb to cynicism when looking at the cutthroat competition in the tech world, but a new video from Google that demonstrates its self-driving car is more than enough to lead one’s heart back to the optimism inherent in human technology. In the video, Google employees pick up Steve Mahan, a man who’s lost 95 percent of his vision, and put him behind the wheel — and from the moment the car starts up to a gentle robotic voice that announces “auto driving,” it’s clear that this ride is going to be unlike any other you’ve seen. Steve explains how “you lose your timing in live, everything takes you much longer” — “there are some places that you cannot go, there are some things that you really cannot…

If you ever plan to lead a PowerPoint presentation projected on giant white board orbiting the Earth (we’ll leave the logistics of that one up to you) there’s only one laser pointer that will get the job done — Wicked Lasers‘ S3 Krypton. The Guinness Record-pending pointer produces about 86 million lux and can be seen from up to 85 miles away, well beyond the edge of our atmosphere. Of course, at roughly 8,000-times the brightness of the Sun, serious safety precautions are needed when operating the S3. Goggles are a must (and bundled with the handheld laser), while sensors and a microprocessor regulate current to keep the tube of aluminum from overheating in your hands. The top end model is available now for $ 1,000 but, if blinding astronauts isn’t on your agenda, lower-powered versions can be had starting at $ 300. Check out the video after the break.
Daytona International Speedway is synonymous with speed, auto racing, and . . . blind people? Virginia Tech’s Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa), along with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), recently debuted its sight-optional and street-legal SUV at the famed racetrack. Dr. Dennis Hong and his students first let blind folks drive a dune buggy without the help of a sighted copilot in 2009 — as a first step to achieving the goal of a street-legal SUV for the sightless crowd. The SUV in question was designed for the NFB’s Blind Driver Challenge, and is equipped with a drive-by-wire system — also seen in the RoMeLa autonomous vehicle — that was modified for use with RoMeLa’s SpeedStrip and DriveGrip tactile interface technology. It works by using a laser rangefinder to map the surrounding area, relaying information for acceleration and braking to the driver by rumbling the SpeedStrip seat, and passing along turning info through vibrations in the DriveGrip gloves. The system was not developed solely for the purpose of getting blind drivers on the road, however, as Virginia Tech suggests that its technology could also be used in gaming applications. We’re not quite ready to see blind drivers on actual roads just yet, but why shouldn’t our sight-impaired friends get to enjoy Gran Turismo 5 with the rest of us? Video’s after the break.

Thanks to the iPad queen herself, Arden Myrin, for starring as Ms. Bullock, and Josh Dubose and Douglas Sarine for being the comedy all stars they are. This is just a fun little side project. We’re editing new Ninja episodes as I write this.
