There are just a few weeks of tinkering to go for some Philadelphia-area developers competing in a worldwide $100,000 challenge. Their goal is to come up with technology to empower people with disabilities.
Think of Paul Kotler as Steve Jobs when it comes to this contest: he’s the idea man.
“We need an app that senses our anxiety and provides calming feedback,” Kotler says. “Typing faster helps a lot. And being able to arrange it to help with some simple tasks as a learning tool.”
