Meet 27-year-old Srikanth Bolla. This Hyderabad native undertands the value of coming up the hard way. He was shunned as a child for being visually impaired. His teahcers had no faith in him, and would make him sit on the last bench; the establishment asked him to take arts because he was not 'good in maths and science'. Yet Bolla, despite all that he endured, took it in his stride, and started Bolla Industries. Bolla, who was born in 1992, to a family whose livelihood depended on farming, wanted to pursue science for Class 10+2, but wasn't permitted to do so because of his medical condition. He then filed a case and after six months, the court granted him permission to study science 'at his own risk'. He scored 98% in Class XII, but was denied entry into IITs.

Google Glass is helping autistic children understand emotions 3.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Remember Google Glass; the failed AR hardware by Google which never materialized into a commercial product? Researchers are now putting it to some good cause. Researchers have used the AR glasses to develop a therapy routine for children with autism who find it difficult to understand the emotions of others, Engadget reported. Google Glass's facial recognition system notifies the wearer about the emotions people are expressing. The pilot trial resulted in positive development in autistic children who made better eye contact after the therapy.  Previously, studies suggested that using heads-up display technology like Google Glass may slow down the brain's response time.  That could pose issues for people driving, when a delay of a few seconds could mean the difference between life and death, researchers said. Heads-up display technology offers lots of information to users in seconds, literally in front of their eyes. Access to information is critical in today's fast-paced world, but the research at the ...
