This is one of the most amazing stories I've read in ages. How fantastic to be able to do this! I am absolutely thrilled for everyone who can take advantage of this new technology and that young man looks happy - and, most of all, capable - which is the very best of it all. Thank God for the people who came up with this idea and the way to make it possible. Who knows how far this technology can go? Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it.
