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

Kotaku - You may not know Alain Poitras' name. But, if you've heard about the quadriplegic gamer who conquered Bronze and Silver challenges in Mass Effect 3, then you're familiar with two of his biggest accomplishments. Poitras answered some e-mail questions about Mass Effect and what it takes for a person with physical disabilities like his to continue playing video games. (Culture)

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
