This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book.

Brazilian boys wear skirts to school in support of transgender classmate 

A transgender student at the O Colégio Pedro II in Brazil found an entire class of allies this month, proving that the LGBT movement is alive and well in South America.
The incident began when 17-year-old transgener student Maria Muniz was fined for wearing a skirt to school; the skirt conforms with the school’s student code of ethics mandating girls wear skirts and boys wear trousers. 
Refusing to acknowledge her gender identity, a teacher fined Maria, claiming that she must wear pants. Maria’s classmates then rose to defend their peer — students, both male and female, came to school wearing skirts. 
And it worked! | Follow micdotcom
