>>Thanks for speaking with me just now. Pursuant to our conversation, I am

>>working on a new science series that airs weekly on the PBS affiliate in San

>>Francisco, KQED. (you can see all of our "Quest" segments that are streaming

>>in HD on our web site - www.kqed.org/quest).

>>

>>

>>

>>One of the stories that we are working on at the moment is on video game

>>accessibility, for which we filmed at the Game Developers Conference last

>>week.

>>I am desperately trying to find a paraplegic, quadriplegic or someone else

>>with a severe physical impairment that is a gaming enthusiast and who

>>resides in the Bay Area. Perhaps such an individual has purchased one of

>>your optical devices designed with disabled gamers in mind?

>>As I'm on a bit of a deadline, any leads you can offer at your earliest

>>convenience would be much appreciated.
