We imagine all innovation made to enhance the lives of people who have suffered a life-altering tragedy (such as Tony Quan has) is up to big industry. We believe that the technology that allows people with incredibly limited mobility to create and communicate is prohibitively expensive and inaccessible to those on an average budget.

This story and video prove not only that creativity and technology can be and are in the hands of the masses if we seize the opportunity, but that if we dream big and cooperate, we’re hampered only by the limit of our imaginations.
