Bocelli visits MIT for tech workshop

AMY CRAWFORD Associated Press Published:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Italian classical singer Andrea Bocelli says he might one day get to use the tools for the visually impaired that researchers around the world are developing with support from the foundation that bears his name.

Scientists and engineers working on high-tech tools to help people with low or no vision make their way through the world gathered at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Friday to share some of their projects.

Participants heard an introduction from Bocelli, who was born with congenital glaucoma and lost his sight completely after a childhood accident.
