The NASA Supercritical Wing (1970-1973).
The project showed increased transonic efficiency of the F-8 as much as 15 percent and proved that passenger transports with supercritical wings, versus conventional wings, could save $78 million (in 1974 dollars) per year for a fleet of 280 200-passenger airliners.

A braille sign on a "Fun Mirror"? Turns out to be good idea if you think broadly enough.

At first blush, I and many other people thought this was a very stupid design. So much so that I posted it in my Design Fails collection: https://plus.google.com/+FilippoSalustri/posts/QEa41u1xsuT.

But, as was pointed out in a number of comments, and brought to my attention by +Gaythia Weis, it does make sense once you take into account human nature and actual behaviours by children, sighted and otherwise.

For those of you who prefer to stay away from reddit, I reproduce here one of many similar comments - the one Gaythia picked out, because it seems particularly well written to me and sums up the situation nicely.

LaBluegrass wrote:
It's in large Braille. An early Braille reader will recognize the letters. Tactual learning, like this sign, are important for pre-Braille skills. Even if a visually impaired child doesn't play with the mirror, he or she benefits from the sign. A big challenge blind and low-vision students face is the lack of incidental reading. Walk into any space that is used by children and notice all the signs and posters and rugs and toys. Many are all geared toward early literacy. items are typically labelled, the alphabet is in large font and primary colors. Early Braille readers don't get the same exposure. When they read, it is usually intentional and purposeful with a Braille teacher. A sign like the one in the OP is incidental reading.

A kid who can't see the mirror will still be playing with their friends who CAN see the mirror. They will all be shrieking and laughing and telling each other how silly they look. The child who can't see the reflection will still have fun because they're all being silly and interacting with their peers.

This design isn't crappy, it's inclusive.

Here's a direct link to that comment on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/CrappyDesign/comments/6p0rtm/put_a_braille_sign_on_the_fun_mirror/dkmb3r6/

What's especially sad is that I really should know better. Less than a year ago, I wrote up a case for my students - http://deseng.ryerson.ca/dokuwiki/design:newmarket_blind_crossing_sign_case_study - that dealt with a similar general situation. Honestly, I can't believe I messed up. But hopefully I've learned something from this. It's not a question of being "open-minded" or anything. It's a question of learning from one's mistakes, and - in this case - remembering that my own life experience is just the tiniest fragment of what's possible, and to be a better designer (and teacher, and person generally), I need to be willing to look for and understand the life experiences of others.___

Problem with Canada's Vape Expo: too many choices, which leads to "analysis paralysis."
There were too many juices, too many devices, too many vendors to assess in a relatively short time. I did end up buying a couple of small items, but I'm pretty sure I could have purchased more wisely had I time to properly assess things.
As a trade show, this is fine. But for individual customers looking for just a couple of things, this really isn't a good idea.

How to use a GV to cycle through notifications in KWGT?
EDIT: SOLVED!

I've looked everywhere I can think of and can't figure it out.
I have a widget that shows notification gv(n). I set 'n' to be a global number initially set to 0. If I manually update 'n', all seems well. The widget displays the appropriate info.
The widget has an element that, when I tap it, ought to increment 'n' so that the widget then shows the next notification.
I can't figure out what to do to make that happen.

I tried setting a Touch for the element in question to a Kustom Action. However, the only action that makes sense is Toggle Switch. But 'n' is a number, not a switch.

And if I make 'n' be a switch, I can't figure out - nor does it make sense really - to set it to values other than on or off.

I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdE8Eso-pck, but I guess its a KLWP thing, whereas I need it to work for KWGT.

Can someone help me out and walk me through how to change the value of a global via a touch, or something comparable, in KWGT?

UPDATE: FIgured it out. I just wasn't aware of how... peculiar some aspects of KWGT could be. I thought I needed to define the global as a number, but turns out I needed to define it as text, which then lets me "toggle" it (I'm not sure it makes sense to "toggle" text), which in turn lets me define a formula that can do anything to the value (so, not really toggling at all).___
