On this week’s program:
The Pittsburgh Penguins continue their quest for the Stanley Cup – with the second level of NHL Playoffs, with the Washington Capitals. With tourists arriving in Pittsburgh, next week – for two, playoff games – what kind of financial bonanza will that mean, for the Pittsburgh economy? We’ll ask Craig Davis – President & CEO of Visit Pittsburgh (the local convention& visitors bureau).
Then, the amazing story of how “Indi” — a special, electronic tablet, designed by the Pittsburgh-based Tobii Dynavox — enables those who cannot speak (including children struggling with autism, cerebral palsy, and others, suffering from ALS),with the remarkable ability to communicate.
Robert Cunningham, Vice-President of Products and Development, for Tobii Dynavox, will demonstrate how this remarkable invention works, and we’ll watch the reaction of a child, who is being helped, by the use of it.
Finally, we’ll meet the CEO of a Columbus, Ohio-based architecture and design firm – “Design Group” – Sherm Moreland – and find out why that company decided to open a new office, on Pittsburgh’s North Side – Nova Place (the refurbished, former Allegheny Center), and why Pittsburgh makes sense, as a place for “Design Group” to bring innovation, to its clients.
