Crowdfunding success - and all thanks to you!

Bless my cotton socks - you did it! THANK YOU to all you fantastic people who've dug deep and donated to our charity crowdfunder and raised nearly £7,000 for a very special controller to enable disabled gamers to join in the fun of playing video games, just using their eyes.

We're honoured that so many people - including Jonathan Ross, Tim Schafer and Tom Watson - have put their weight behind the campaign. The eye-gaze system it funds is going to make a huge difference to a whole bunch of people. People like Tiago (below) whose quality of life has benefited hugely by being able to use a computer simply by moving his eyes.

Thanks again - it's an astonishing achievement. So many people to thank, but we'd like to say a particularly big thank you to Team Gambitious including Sjoerd, Paul and the one and only Andy Payne, who's energy, drive and Gambitious platform made it all happen.
