What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?

Imagine you have complete access to some of the best speakers in the world, TED Fellows, the TED Team and a bunch of the most talented TEDx organizers on the planet. Now imagine all of this happening in Doha, Qatar on 16th April, 2012.

I'm fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the TEDxSummit in Doha and now I ask you to share with me a question or an idea which needs to be heard.

I'll try my very best to ask/share it with them :)

  • Mar 23 2012: I am not an engineer and I do not know any thing about electronics or sensors. Yet, I saw a handycam of Sony where when I want to shoot a picture, I saw an icon of Human flashing there. Then I moved it around for a long shot, I saw a tree icon replaced the human icon, when I projected towards sky, then I found clouds icon was there. I was astonished and thought whether these icons can have sounds - so to say - garden, people etc., and if we attach a ear plug can we hear that sound. If that is the case can we input more icons - like bus, troly, car, train, big wall, open drain, gathering, lamp post etc., and with sounds so that - a blind man can wear this handy cam and walk without stick and can hear what is opposite to him?? Is it possible? If it is possible, then we can even input the script of English language and give sound to that...???? Any one in TED convey this to Sony people??? It will help the blind people.
    This is my idea...
