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?
