It's nice to see so much going on in the field technology for the disabled today, kind of makes you think mankind is actually doing good or something amongst all the embroilments and political turmoil. An Israeli company has developed a $200 cellphone for the lip-reading deaf; the caller's voice is electronically mimed by a character on screen, whose lips can be read. Well hot damn, why didn't we think of that? Guess we'll just have to put all our brainpower to work figuring out how to make the thing expressively swear or spit invective, kind of like with those awful Oddcast ads.
