Yeah, this is some AMAZING work. I got a chance to see Kathrin present on
this last month at the ASSETS conference (the project actually won the Best
Student Paper Award), and it blew everyone's minds. She and I both
participated in the Doctoral Consortium, so we had a chance to chat about
game accessibility 1:1 quite a bit as well. The project originally evolved
out of an interest in getting elderly wheelchair users more involved in
social and exergames, but as you can see in the two videos, it has massive
potential for integration with games of any sort.

Can't wait to see where this tech goes next!
