  • Description

    A New York City telephone company employee had provided blind ten pin bowlers with the means to "see" their score as they play.

    Charles Wood developed an electronic device that records the pins knocked down by a bowler's ball. The machine has already been installed on an alley at the New York Institute for the Blind. Its success there has created interest among other public service groups across the United States.

    Apart from helping the blind bowlers note their score as they play, the new device is reported to improve the standard of play of bowlers who use it.
