Paralyzed From the Neck Down, He Refused to Give Up Video Games

Kotaku - You may not know Alain Poitras' name.

He's a true example of how strong determination and spirit could help achieve what seems impossible. I know somewhere out there, there are good people developing tech to help aid the paralyzed in gaming and other forms of things we commonly take for granted.

well said, we need more R&D so that people with disabilities can enjoy what the rest of us take for granted
