The sponge idea is a good one, Aaron. Have you seen the Skoog musical instrument (www.skoogmusic.com)? It uses a 3D sensor within a sponge housing, to control music software. It's very sensitive, but not to the degree you have imagined for yours.

Ben's a talented guy, who helped to get a new one-handed controller to market (the Access Controller). Have you seen the updates of people/groups who can adapt/create bespoke controllers here: http://www.oneswitch.org.uk/1/AGS/AGS-bespoke.htm ? It's great that the list of people doing this stuff (and I'm sure I've not got them all) is ever growing.

Hi all,

Here’s a brief idea for physical disabilities involving the hands, This idea has been rattling around in my head for several days -
For persons with limited hand/finger strength, There needs to be a squishy ball made of a soft material that senses slight movements of the fingers & palms that register as button presses.

A sensor would exist in this ball for each finger squish & a sensor for palm squishes

It’d have a user friendly graphical computer program to configure the sensors to a individuals preferences.

Do you kind folks know about http://benheck.com/ - He's a hardware modder
