Whitley Stimpson visit SpecialEffect – Oscar Ng, Alan Morgan, Laura Adkins, Mark Saville
Whitley Stimpson, who recently won two awards at the Cherwell Business Awards, were thrilled to be given a tour of the outstanding SpecialEffect facilities.
SpecialEffect, who the firm helped raise £3000 for at the Twin Town Challenge in Witney earlier this year, help video gamers overcome physical disabilities using cutting-edge technology.
Laura Adkins, Alan Morgan and Oscar Ng were shown round by Mark Saville who demonstrated some of the groundbreaking tech available to gamers through SpecialEffect, including the revolutionary EyeGlaze technology which allows users to play some of the biggest video games on the market using just their eyes.
SpecialEffect have been able to recruit more clinical occupational therapists and purchase new vehicles as well as continuing to invest in their innovative technology, thanks to the money Whitley Stimpson and other local businesses raised.
Director Laura said: “It’s wonderful to have seen how the money we and hundreds of others raised is being used. The facilities and technology available to video gamers thanks to this fantastic charity really are top of the range and it was a real pleasure to witness this.
“SpecialEffect’s work continues to break boundaries and helps gamers to overcome disability with cutting-edge technology.”
Oscar echoed this sentiment and said: “I was blown away at the opportunities here for gamers. As a video gamer myself, it made me realise that when I’m playing online I could quite easily be playing in a game with someone using this fantastic technology.”
