Ever wondered how Stephen got the idea to remotely control things with his arm? Or how he decided to not take a job upon graduation and start his own business? Feel free to ask him these questions and more at this group lunch session with him and up to two other bidders. Afterwards, you will get to tour Thalmic's offices and play with the Myo yourself!
