A project that is aimed at helping the blind is representing Georgia Tech/Atlanta in the National Design Awards presented by the Smithsonian this year! Please share/spread the word for students to vote for GT
The research project (The PHL Gloves) does not have the social media strength that the other nominees (companies) have and votes from the students could put Georgia Tech on top.
The Glove project is nominated for the 2014 People’s Design Award, presented by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. The Smithsonian’s team of experts selected 20 nominees, and now this is a voting-determined award. How the gloves work is covered in short here: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~cseim6/phlgloves.html
Please spread the word so GT can win this!
