Technology Tuesday

Since this is National Direct Support Professional Week, we thought it would be a good idea to use this Tech Tuesday give a shout out to Imagine!’s very own Brodie Schulze, who will be participating in an American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) webinar this Thursday entitled “DSPs Unplugged.” A moderated panel of direct support professionals, including Brodie (the 2017 Colorado DSP of the Year), will share their reflections, lessons learned, and ideas for providing critical support for people who rely on our services. The webinar platform technology makes it possible for DSPs from different parts of the country to share their insights in a single online setting.

Technology Tuesday

This week’s Tech Tuesday takes us to the Boulder hub of Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source, where we see Gerald showcasing some pretty exciting tech. He’s equipped with the latest generation of a product known as HotHand USB. It’s a simple device that sends MIDI signals wirelessly through Bluetooth to a desktop, and with simple motions, can help create some pretty powerful music. Gerald can be seen doing just that in this video, taken at the Dairy Center for the Arts, where he used the HotHand to add layers of guitar music into a musical performance

If you’d like more information on the HotHand, or about ways that this device is being employed by musicians currently, check out this link.

Keep up the good work, Gerald!
