ITKAN members watch a TED Talk featuring Henry Evans of Robots for Humanity. Evans sustained a massive stroke (CVA) leaving him with near complete paralysis other than modest head movements and limited gross motor movement of one hand. A former Silicon Valley CFO, Henry is now leading a global effort to capture robotic and drone technology that can enable people with severe disabilities and others to "travel the world" and visit cultural attractions. He sees no limit to the capacity of technology, coupled with human creativity, to create a rich and engaged life for all.
