  1. I have been working with airline pilots to make a machine-human interface which I think will help astronauts with space exploration. I have also made a prototype for a wearable device that works on an interface the size of a cell phone. (See ) I have designed the latest vision on the Gemini Spacecraft where the user only needs to move the curser over any light, button, or switch to get a detailed description, then one click to get any piece of information you would need. (See ) . I will be updating this site as I get the secure site up and running.

    I was hoping to work with NASA to turn their manuals it an easy to use interface. It could also be a publicity tool to promote the space program. If you have any information on who to contact, I would hope you could pass it on to me. I would appreciate any help you could give.
