Dear Chris,

How are you? Guess what just happened?! You know how my mom has been blind for her whole life? Well yesterday she got these new glasses that can help her see. They’re called See Glasses. The doctor said they use heat sensors and motion detectors to tell where something is. They also sense color and shape to tell what an object looks like. She tried them out and was able to find me without me telling her where I was. This was the first time she’s ever been able to do that. We were all laughing and crying at the same time! She really loves her new glasses and they have really changed her world. Actually, they've changed all of our worlds!

I hope to see you soon.

Your friend,
Jack

Dear Jack,

Hey that is great! I talked to my cousin who works at Visiontech, where they designed the glasses, and he says they have ultrasonic transmitters in them that send a message to the brain. The silver dots on the glasses send a special wavelength to the brain that transforms into a message. The brain then converts that message into an image. It’s all really awesome!
By the way, I’ll be going through town next week, so I’ll try to see you and your mom. I’d love to see the glasses in action. It will be fun the first time your mom is able to see me!

Sincerely,
Chris
