I'm working on designing and prototyping a body worn personal navigation system for blind users based on an Arduino Mega with mulitple sensors and a tactile "display" as an open source hardware/software system.   I have over half a century experience in analog electronics, but little digital, and no programming knowledge, so I'm looking for folks with expertise in Arduino, C++ programming, or 3D printing.   I'd prefer to find folks close enough to get together in southern New Hampshire but that may be difficult.  The followup project will be another device for disabled folks.

Hi I have played with the pic micros in c and machine code but only looked at the arduino
A bit they have some interesting badge style cards
Have you thought about 3d printing a watch style strap with a micro inside
It could make different tones to indicate the way to go
Maybe possible to get it to speak
