Particularly as the uncle of a little dude who uses a wheelchair, this news makes me very happy & proud:
Google announced this morning via blog post that it has partnered with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation to give away 100,000 Home Mini units to people living with paralysis. The news is designed to mark the 29th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was signed into law on this day in 1990.
There’s a form on Google’s site for people who qualify and their caregivers. Interested parties must live in the United States to receive a unit.

I am a quadriplegic. I broke my neck almost 10 years ago swimming in the river. This device could definitely benefit me tremendously.
That’s great to hear, Chad! Please let me know if you run into any trouble obtaining one.
Boy, you work for great corporation.
