Playing Darts

by Cesare Rocchi

Just yesterday I wrote that your business is about them. This is extremely evident if you are building devices and software for customers with disabilities.

Yesterday Kevin told me he was on TV. I met Kevin at Cocoaconf. We have been in touch since then. He’s blind since birth. He helped building and testing BrainPort V100. A camera mounted on glasses depicts a scene on a pad which the user keeps on the tongue and those stimuli are processed by the visual cortex.

Yesterday Kevin was on Fox 47 to explain the device. Here’s the video. Just skip to 1:35 where Kevin … plays darts!

This is what technology is meant for: opening doors and possibilities.

I look forward to the next time I am around Chicago to play darts with Kevin.
