Does being blind serve as an excuse to stifle creation and innovation? From a young age Ralph Teetor was molded by his father to have a different mindset and accept the fact that anyone can build something as long as they are given a workshop. Tinkering with those tools eventually led Teetor to pursue a formal education and graduate with a degree in mechanical engineering. Eventually curiosity led to an astonishing discovery that helped solve a problem. While sitting in a vehicle, he listened as his driver would constantly accelerate and decelerate, giving him a nauseous symptom. On that day, a simple teeter-tottering effect led to the development of a device that could managed a constant speed. In 1945, his patent eventually led to the adoption of cruise control, a “speed control device for resisting operation of the accelerator.” Adjustments using an electromagnetic motor added to the functionality of keeping the car at a steady pace. Who knows how many barrels of fuel this invention has saved? The world may never know.
