Talking Digital Calipers for Engineering Accessibility

Whether itʼs software engineers and their compilers or electrical engineers and their oscilloscopes, engineers and makers of all kinds rely on tools to build great things every day.  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.
