I was at Naidex on Tuesday giving some comments to the BBC World Service “outside source” program on the new “Gyroset” head motion control system that can be used to control a wheelchair and computer mouse among other things.
I’m really excited about it as a way to control my environment and wheelchair. It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally an intuitive, proportional control system that I hope will enable a more smooth and natural way of driving.
So you can listen to the program here.
The interview with now technologies and my comments are around 9 minutes in.
Whereas previous attempts at this kind of thing have been disappointing in terms of software reliability and performance, these guys seem to have got it right and have a fully functional, well performing polished device. The problem now is to get the wheelchair manufacturers on board @PermobilUK are you listening?
Well done Jenny Lee for raising 4k for @backuptrust in the #LondonMarathon. #Champion
went to the Calexico gig at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, really enjoyed the support act @BarBrothers with stunning guitar play and mesmerising drumming. we actually thought we would come to see Jose Gonzales but someone got the dates a month out (wasn’t me)!
Should be being interviewed on BBC World Service 2pm on Tuesday about a new gyroscopic head control for a powered wheelchair.
Ministry of Sound on Friday was epic, after watching @JonHopkins @o2AcademyBrixton, @claptone showed silky blending skills before @HenrySasiz absolutely smashed it long into morning! what a sound system from @MartinAudioLtd in “the box” room, has to be heard to be believed, crisp high fidelity with good spectral power distribution. @MinistryOfSound is the most wheelchair accessible club I’ve been to in London and the best organised as well, much admiration for those involved.
Pictures with brother Lucas, @EmiliaClarke and @SamClaflin on the set of #MeBeforeYou with the wonderful cast and crew. Thanks for the lovely experience and look forward to the film.
