Come to the Lipsync Buildathon At Craftnight!
Still in town for World Makerfaire? Come by NYCResistor’s Monday open night tonight and use you making skills to give back to the community!
The LipSync enables a person that has no use of their hands to use a touchscreen device, laptop or computer — it is a mouth operated joystick that allows a person to control an onscreen cursor with minimal head and neck movement. An open-source hardware project funded by Google, it uses 3D printed parts, an Arduino Micro board, and other common parts that can be soldered to a circuit board and built in a day.
A “Lipsync Buildathon” is an event that trains makers to build an open source assistive technology, the LipSync (www.makersmakingchange.com/lipsync). By the end of the session, each maker will make a LipSync for a person in their community. We’re kicking off this build-a-thon at 7PM in conjunction with our usual public open night, so come by and say hello!
