    Brought a tear to my eye. Finally the machines start conforming to us.

    John, Thank you for this. It is a brilliant presentation and so off of the normal technology path to touch us in places we didn’t know were so sensitive. What a wonderful application of our technologies to be something more than just visual!

    It is truly wonderful to see technology used to power lives, to change lives…it’s beautifully affirming to see people dedicate their gifts toward helping others through their hard work and resources.

    Thank you for sharing, Mr. Nack.

    Damn you Nack! This made my new Retina display all blurry, and I have mundane, non-life-changing work to do.
