HeadMouse: Wireless Optical SensorBy Closing the Gap, Vol. 19, No. 2, p. 10
Publication Date: June/July 2000
Article describing the HeadMouse for Portables, which is a wireless optical sensor that tracks a tiny and disposable target placed on the user's forehead or glasses. The HeadMouse translates the movements of the user's head into directly proportional movements of a computer mouse pointer. When this feature is combined with an on-screen keyboard, such as SofType, the HeadMouse can completely replace the functions of a conventional keyboard. The HeadMouse for Portables has been optimized for use with laptop computers, as the lightweight and rugged sensor is attached directly to the computer display. Power is provided by an adapter, which is directly connected to a wheelchair-mounted battery.
Assistive Products Discussed: SOFTYPE 4.2 & SOFTYPE 4.5 FOR INTERNATIONAL KEYBOARDS
