Aug. 3, 2010----University of Delaware seniors Rob Haislip, Joshua Marks and Rob Rehrig showcased their research to a national audience of video gamers Monday evening when the G4 network's Attack of the Show featured a segment on their “Wii Assist” project.

The project aims at making computers more accessible for individuals with disabilities. Together Haislip, Marks and Rehrig adapt hardware from Nintendo's Wii, transforming it into devices that control a computer mouse.

The segment, videotaped by Haislip, aired during a segment called “Viewer Army.” See it here.

All three students are electrical engineering majors, and Marks is an Honors Program student.
