The Chronicle of Higher Ed posted this today: There is a neuro-application that will let people with mobility issues direct their avatars' movment in SL. I'm reminded of someone I knew once: we were discussing what we would do if we had an hour to do anything we wanted. He, who was blind, said, "I'd fly again."

On one hand, this article expresses wonderful capacity. Since I have spacial issue, I certainly welcome it! Though as I think of my friend who said he would fly again, I'm also reminded that SL has visual limitations and sometimes auditory limitations.
