BIGfish client Beaver Country Day School was featured in today’s Boston Herald for receiving a $10,000 grant from the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam program to build an automated robotic vehicular independence system to help people in wheelchairs with everyday tasks. The team at Beaver was inspired by Ann Bevan Hollos, a wheel-chair bound middle school dean and teacher at Beaver Country Day School, to develop a device, which (unlike current wheelchair backpacks and tethered trailers) will wirelessly follow the user via motion sensors and a Microsoft Kinect sensor.
