We depend on tools so much that we often take our ability to use them for granted. The NerdKits team was contacted by a blind mechanical engineering student, and combined technologies from two earlier projects to produce a set of talking digital calipers that turn a distance measurement into an audible readout. The video includes a clip where Terry explains his passion for engineering and shows how he uses the talking calipers in his job and classes, so be sure to take a look."
