Colin Slade, a Cobourg, Ontario based maker, has been helping us with our work in a phenomenal way. He has been 3D printing low tech assistive devicesfrom our open source projects library for people with disabilities in his community.

Colin is part of a group called the Northumberland Makers, who have been working with community partners on a variety of assistive projects. “These things inspire people and, once they are inspired, they can do more,” he says in an article in Today’s Northumberland“Your limit is your imagination and a few technical challenges.”

We are in talks with Colin to host a LipSync buildathon sometime in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to learn more. Big thanks to Colin and his group for all their work!
