I never approached Rita as a female action character, I just saw her as this lethal powerhouse who was pretty much the toughest person I’ve come across. She wasn’t this kind of butch woman, she had gotten to where she was by being savvy and intelligent and determined, and I think that’s what excited me – the spirit she had. Emily Blunt on Rita Vrataski

MIT Finger Device Reads to the Blind in Real Time
“Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are developing an audio reading device to be worn on the index finger of people whose vision is impaired, giving them affordable and immediate access to printed words.
The so-called FingerReader, a prototype produced by a 3-D printer, fits like a ring on the user’s finger, equipped with a small camera that scans text. A synthesized voice reads words aloud, quickly translating books, restaurant menus and other needed materials for daily living, especially away from home or office.”
