SpecialEffect is an interesting charity. It focuses on helping people with disabilities play video games, and one of the most recent players they helped was a man named Lee.
Before Lee developed spinal muscular atrophy, he loved to play video games, but afterwards, he lost his ability to do so. SpecialEffect developed equipment that allowed him to play by using joysticks with his chin and triggering microswitches through minor finger movements.
Now, he can play many games, including GTA V, something he never thought he’d be able to do. We’re very happy for Lee, and proud that the good people at SpecialEffect help disabled gamers return to the hobbies they love. These are the sorts of stories that remind us how much good there is in the world.
