Some Wake Forest University students are using bats as a model to help the blind navigate their world. Just like the flying mammals, the H.E.L.P device works by emitting sound waves and echoes.
Questions for discussion:
1. Do you believe a device like this would be more helpful than a guide dog or less?
2. Have you had much experience with visually impaired individuals?
