"He was one of the panel members at @4IRIndaba. We were all hooked to every word he said as he explained how his parents, who are both 'hearing impaired', inspired this."
"Really? That’s amazing so but do they translate back?"
"These guys in Limpopo are ahead of time, building smart gloves and cars."
