Can blind children find Easter eggs?

That depends on where they live. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, local Army and Air Force and police bomb squads, shown below, used their unique skills to make it possible. Special circuitry within each egg produces a beeping tone audible to most children.

The Albuquerque police department hosted an Easter egg hunt for blind children on the Saturday before Easter. The event was held at USS Bullhead Memorial Park, and hundreds attended. The community plans to make it an annual celebration, and similar events using beeping eggs were also held this Easter weekend in Virginia, Texas and Florida.
