When life gives you lemons…or breaks your pelvis; don’t waste too much time with self pity when you have have a huge opportunity in front of you. That is what Gilad Wolf did. He took the time to make life better for not only himself, but countless other handicapped people throughout the world. Personally, I can’t believe that this hasn’t been tackled as elegantly as his interpretation in over 60 years of wheelchair manufacturing??
Trae and I had an exploratory conversation the other day about where we see the Red Mountain Makers makerspace/hackerspace in another few years. I told him I felt it should eventually be place where anyone can come to learn how to develop their own ideas into software and/or hardware products/tools that can be produced in small market test production runs. This Birmingham makerspace will give each person the opportunity design and develop their own ideas as well as full control over their own financial destiny.
