What wood happen if you made your device buzz instead of breaking, then attached your device to your feet. If you walked around blindfolded would it buzz before you stepped in a hole or stubbed your toe. Two tones would be best, one for a hole and one for an obstacle.

Contrary to common belief; most blind people can see something, so most blind people do not walk into walls, pols, or people. Most blind people cannot see their feet or the ground; what they do walk into is holes, into or off of curbs, and children's toys, lying about.

...going rogue...


...NASA personnel...


I think an outstanding science fair project idea would be very helpful to you, because you might not have the spelling skills needed to succeed as an English major.


No. I'm joking. It's mean to say things like that.

I'm sure you have the ability to excel in whatever course of study you choose... if you study hard ... and if you have time to study hard ...

Two weeks seems kind of like a small amount of time, so you probably want to put off looking up those dictionary defs, for at least two weeks, because I guess you have more important stuff to focus on, right now!

Regarding science project ideas, I have always liked matter separation problems, problems like separating salt from sugar, or gold dust from dirt, or aluminum cans from plastic bottles, or copper pennies from zinc pennies.

Do you suppose two weeks is enough time to build a machine for to separate some desired material thing from a mixture containing that thing, and some other undesired things, kind of like one of the examples I mentioned, or some related analogy of that.

I dunno. Maybe you could build a time machine? Then the two week deadline wouldn't really be a problem.

It just occurred to me, since you mentioned NASA people, the kind of matter separation problems that I suspect are most interesting to NASA people, are those related to life support, more specifically to air and water; i.e. methods for making dirty water, or even human waste, into clean water, and methods for scrubbing CO2 from air and putting O2 back.

As recently as a few months ago, somebody was asking this forum about how the ISS (International Space Station) kept its air oxygenated and breathable.

The answer, in a word: ECLSS


That word probably rhymes with "reckless", or "feckless", although I don't know for sure because I've never heard it pronounced. I mean, I read a lot, but I don't exactly hang out with these rocket scientist peoples.

The link to that actual previous question in the Answers forum, is here:

Trump is starting the space program again, I suggest to focus on something of use for space travel to our near planets.
