Chad Leaman and the LipSync team travel to New York City to present at Hackaday and the World Maker’s Faire

Director of Development, Chad Leaman, and the LipSync team have headed to New York City for the Hackaday NYC maker meetup (new window) and the World Maker Faire (new window).

Leaman will speak at the Hackaday NYC maker meetup on September 29.

“We’ve brought a LipSync device with us and have a chance to show other makers interested in assistive technology what we’re doing,” Leaman said of the meetup. “But more importantly, we’ll have a great opportunity to learn from others and engage with other makers. I’m looking forward to seeing the other speakers and meeting the other makers, most of whom creating assistive technology.”

On October 1 and 2, the team will attend the World Maker Faire.

“Here, we think we really have a good opportunity to study how to engage makers. A big part of this project is not only creating and adapting the LipSync for makers, but also how we engage makers and connect skilled people in the community with people with disabilities, for the LipSync and more,” said Leaman.
