Designing the openSip+puff handicap controller

Jason has a working prototype for what he calls a openSip+puff.  It’s meant to be a controller for people with disabilities.  It will allow you to do things with your mouth by sucking in air and blowing out air.

It uses a pressure sensor and an ATmega32u4.  It connects as a USB device so it can end up being a keyboard or mouse device (or some sort of button trigger or joystick).  I think the code is still being hashed out but he’s making good progress.

It’s open source hardware, and he’s hoping to do a Kickstarter soon.
