Just a preview of another local Surrey hero Surrey604 will be getting to know better in 2013…
Yesterday, motivational Speaker, Surrey BC’s Marco Pasqua, spoke with Fiona Forbes & Peter Verge about how motion and voice technology is enabling people with limited mobility to create custom templates for mapping their natural body motions and verbal input to any arrangement of keyboard and mouse commands needed for their favorite Windows software, which opens up the world of gaming for differently “abled” people.
Marco (@Marco_Pasqua) will be speaking at TedxStanleyPark on March 16th in Vancouver.
