DIY assistive devices – An interview with Brad Searle of the Reaching for the Stars Foundation

Thanks to Matt for sending in this interview he did with Brad Searle of the Reaching for the Stars Foundation.

In addition Brad builds assistive devices for his son using everything from 3d printers to soft circuits. You can read more about his work at http://www.littlebeluga.com/Welcome.aspx
