A WNY P-TECH student from Fredonia recently replicated a device to create an adaptive video game controller for a Marine who has lost full use of one arm. Tyler Mathews was given the task after a local resident, Steve Myers, approached P-TECH Principal William Smock about the project. Myers’ stepson, Bryce Knapp — who is stationed in Camp Pendleton, California — lost full use of his left arm in a motorcycle crash. One of Bryce’s favorite activities is playing video games with his brother, but he had not been able to do so since the motorcycle accident. According to P-TECH, Mathews’ prototype was a success, and he plans to develop additional improvements.
