A Photo with Daniel and Brian After Echolocation Training Spring 2015

The 2nd day of echolocation (flash sonar) training is over. I was somewhat nervous with observers from Los Angeles Times but it was a great lesson, as it was a great opportunity to find out my shortcomings when I lost track of environment factors like the sunlight, the sound of cars, the traffic flow, an airplane flying over me, and so on.

Thank Brian and Daniel for echolocation and life skill training and we will catch up again!

A special thanks to Robert Gauthier, who took this photo.
(hope the photo shows up.)



Reunion with Daniel Kish

After delivering the speech about flash sonar at TED 2015 conference in Vancouver Canada, Daniel Kish came back home! It's always great to see him and hang out. It's been about 5 months since we met last time. Thanks always for having me for a few days!

Here's Daniel's talk about flash sonar at TED 2015.

Echolocation Training Spring 2015 Day One Follow-Up

It's not an official, but Jules spared some time for me to walk around the neighbourhood after the 1st day training with Brian.


Echolocation Training Spring 2015 Day 1

I'm baaak to Long Beach for an another echolocation training session!

It's the 6th session since my first training in September 2011 with Daniel and Juan. This time, Brian is the main instructor. 

It seems that our first mission is to find Johnny Rebs to have a behemoth amount of beef ribs! If there is a goal, I can do the best!

I found I have lost the ability to process all the information I perceive, hearing the tongue click while observing the noise of traffic, airplanes flying over and wind.
Eventually we got there, but I could have it done better.


Air Canada's Solution to Touch Screen Entertainment System for the Blind

This is the first time I found Air Canada offers a frame for its inflight touch panel screen entertainment system! Though control is limited to Audio, volume control and channel, but at least Air Canada offers some entertainment accessible to the blind and visually impaired passengers!


Golden Gate Bridge

I have flown over it and drove on it so many times, this is the very first time I stopped at the vista point and got photos. It was nice and clear day.

One photo that has me in a frame is taken with iPhone 6 with HDR on and the other one is taken by me with Fujifilm X100S.

Frozen Niagara Falls

It was freezing cold but I made it there!
