Awesome Microsoft Switch Adaptations with Bill Binko
ATMakers.org is an experiment in solving problems in Assistive Technology using the skills and tools of the Maker community. In short, we’ve seen tools in the Open-Source Hardware and Software community that can be incredibly useful for people with severe physical and cognitive challenges – we’d like to help introduce these communities to each other.
Founded by Bill Binko, co-founder and principal technologist at LessonPix.com, we hope to provide descriptions and instructions that allow a community of Makers (for example a high-school robotics club or regulars at a MakerSpace) to build customized technology solutions for Assistive Technology Professionals and individuals whose lives would be enriched by them.
Makers Making Change
3D printers and lower cost development tools are changing the way assisitive technology is created and delivered. This technology provides ways to deliver assistive technology customized to the end user in a cost effective way. Come find out about this new way of delivering assistive technology and get some hands-on experience creating this assistive technology.
