John

John was an accomplished photographer before his disability and he wanted to take photos again. This was a huge engineering task. We had to write software so that the laser keyboard could control the movement of John's camera and display the camera image on his computer. Then we had to mount the whole thing on his wheelchair. John was incredibly excited about the system and participated fully in the design and testing. Below is a picture of the system mounted to John's wheelchair (right). Barret (InvoTek) is helping John to get things set up. On the left is Barret testing the system. Engineering Students from the University of Arkansas also worked on this project.
