Rob and Ryan take shelter from the Vancouver August heat in the cool confines of the Guitar Dungeon to talk with no other than Mike May, founder of Sendero Group and pioneer in the field of GPS Assistive Technology. And as if that isn’t enough, we also talk to him about his downhill skiing career and what it’s like to hold the speed skiing record in downhill for a totally blind person (which is, for the record, 65 mph).
Rob, Ryan, and Mr. Cowbell (Steve is away this week) discuss Smart Phones and their impact on the human condition before turning the microphones at Shawn Kirkpatrick, developer of the long standing accessible GPS app, Loadstone.

Merry Christmas and a very Haptic New Year! This week as we ease into 2018, we’re talking with Keith Kirkland from WearWorks, a company that is working on a haptic wearable navigation aid for the visually impaired.
This week we’re bantering with Peter Tucic, Blackhawks fan and Blindness Product Specialist, about Humanware’s line of forthcoming new products — as well as a bit of hockey smack talk for good measure.
