Event Summary!On World Create Day, we worked on some (very cool) projects that would empower people with disabilities. In Vancouver, we created custom video game controllers, prototyped exo-skeleton arms, and repaired LipSyncs. We were joined by students and volunteers. Here’s the team in action: Above: Mimi working on an accessible Wii controller Above: UBC capstone team members, (left) Albert and (right) Wen-Ling, showing off their work on an updated LipSync running on Adafruit Feather board Above: SFU capstone team working their way through an exo-skeleton arm (and snacks – snacks are important) Thank you for helping us build something that matters.
