Ken Yankelevitz

I had never heard of Ken Yankelevitz before reading this article (thanks Brad Gallaway):
...a Montana engineer whose hobby is hand-making unique controllers to give quadriplegics access to video games usually requiring two hands.

It's an entirely amazing story--Yankelevitz has been custom-making controllers for over 30 years, and selling them to quadraplegic gamers at a price that just covers the cost of the parts.

Unfortunately, it's a sad story as well, because Yankelevitz is nearing his 70th birthday and there's no one to (some day) carry on his fine work.
