Google Nest - the new name for this company's smart-home arm - has partnered with the Reeve Foundation to help members of the community built around this organization. They are individuals affected by paralysis or movement loss disorders. As many as 100,000 of them will receive a free Home Mini as a result of this collaboration.

Google Nest has partnered with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation to help support people living with paralysis. The foundation is now one of the most prominent organizations that works on enhancing life quality for those living with relevant kinds of movement disorder.

The new smart-home arm at Mountain View has entered into this collaboration so as to remain in line with its stated ethos that voice-assistant-powered devices are a "game changer" for individuals affected by paralysis. Therefore, it will offer as many as 100,000 free Home Minis to those affliated with the Reeve Foundation.

These people have between now and August 13, 2019 to claim their smart speaker. They need to do so through the website Googlenest.reevefoundation.org. This offer is open to US residents only, and is subject to limited stocks.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
