Perceptive Devices Founder Uday Parshionikar recently attended the Assistive Technology Industry Association Conference in Orlando, FL and had on exhibit a live demo of Smyle Mouse, the next-gen head mouse, for passersby to give it a try. Users enjoyed using the Smyle Mouse head mouse to paint with Microsoft Paint, play Angry Birds or to type with Microsoft Word using their face.
“There’s a fun aspect to using Smyle Mouse,” says Parshionikar. “You get to smile to click.”
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), Occupational Therapists (OTs) and AT experts in attendance at the conference were impressed with Smyle Mouse and said it would be a great addition to their tool-chest when helping their patients. They were also excited to hear about the advanced features coming soon, especially for people with complex communication needs.
