TV-report on Assistive Technology at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien
The ORF broadcast a report on Assistive Technology at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien. In this report some alternative input options, all realized with AsTeRICS, are introduced, like controlling your environment with an eyeblink or controlling the mouse cursor with the lipmouse. The FLipmouse is a sip-and-puff assistive device developed by the master student Robert Haderer and the project leader of the AsTeRICS Academy Christoph Veigl. With the FLpmouse one can simultaneously control the mouse cursor by fine lip movements and perform mouse clicks by sip-and-puff actions. Additonally, Harry Hötzinger, the first FLipmouse-user and the actual reason for the development of the mouse, shows how he can control a PC and participate in everyday matters like surfing the net, doing banking online or playing PC games. For him, its regaining a little piece of self-determination. All of this was recorded at the ArT-Lab of the Department of Embedded Systems at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien.
Unfortunately, the whole report is in German, but in the first video the most important part of the report is subtitled.
