This video shows how you can combine Dasher, a clever text entry program, with RoboRealm, a clever machine vision program to write a sentence using a Red Ball and a WebCam.
You do this without touching the PC!
This could be used on a Wii, XBox or PS3 to control a browser.

For a deeper look at the alternative input concept, Dasher, see the video on my former post – Dasher – Single Finger Alternative Text Input.

What a totally fascinating gizmo. It’s quite remarkable to watch how technology is able to support those with various disabilities. I can only imagine what sort of things will come out over the next couple of decades. Imagine if there were unlimited funding?
Yes it’s incredible to think what technology can do to enhance the lives of people living with disability.
There will never be enough funding. But just imagine what together could be achieved and accomplished even with limited amounts if we could scale connecting people who are able to make things with those who need things.
Thanks so much for your comment.
