Thank you all for making the day awesome. We will post more pictures in a gallery here as we get them in, but here’s walk-through video for those of you who couldn’t make it!
We’re so happy to partner with The AbleGamers Charity and GRA-V Robotics in Orlando to create and produce these powerful devices to control an XBox Adaptive Controller with the joystick from their power chair!
Check out this event at the Gaming Lounge at ATIA 2020 tomorrow, Feb 1 for the ATIA Maker Day, powered by ATMakers.org. Registration is FREE and we’ll have dozens of adaptive controllers ready to help anyone with physical challenges play XBox on the big screen!

The Adaptive Gaming Kit from Logitech G is an amazing value for those who use Assistive Technology. However, the one thing on our wish list is 1/4″-20 mounts on the bottom so we can use normal camera mounts.
So, in keeping with our other mounts, we’ve released a full set of 3D printable mounts to connect these great switches to inexpensive mounting options.
This assistive technology “Handraiser Light” can be used to gain attention when a person is unable to physically “raise their hand”. It is designed to hang on the back of a laptop or tablet and can be lit as needed.

Check out how to switch adapt this Jack-in-the-Box. A person with disabilities can now use their AT switch to turn the crank of this beloved toy and make “Jack” pop out!
This design has a curved based at the bottom to allow view of the pictures on each side of the box. The bottom of the box is left open to save 3-D printing time and filament.

With the addition last year of the XBox Adaptive Controller, followed by the recent release of the Adaptive Gaming Kit from Logitech G, it is increasingly possible to sharing Gaming with Everyone. In fact, for many switch users over five or six, an accessible XBox setup may be one of the best gifts possible this year.
After a much longer than anticipated process, the updated drivers are available now for Windows 10 computers.
Please check out the Intellikeys page to download and see instructions on installing the new drivers. Continue reading Windows 10 Updated Driver….now available for Intellikeys!
Infrared devices are everywhere – and now it’s easy to control them thanks to our member, Chris Young, and his IRIO board. It’s a simple device that allows any microcontroller to send and receive IR signals which makes it easy to control your environment.
This great little project was inspired by Michelle Brosse in the Facebook Group: she was heading to college and couldn’t get the professor’s attention. She wasn’t looking for a panic button or the like, just a way to raise her hand. This device does exactly that!
This summer, we’re trying something new! We’ve worked with LessonPix Custom Learning Materials and Minor Achievements Learning Center to create a camp where every kid has access to a basic AAC device. We have two types of devices: an Android-based tablet running CoughDrop, and a custom device built on the Adafruit PyPortal intelligent screen.
