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!
