ALTERNATIVE MOUSE DEVICES
I like to watch my older brothers play on the computer.
I like to watch my younger brother play Minecraft.
I like to watch YouTube videos with my sister.
One day, my mom saw that I was feeling sad. She asked “Why are you sad Teddy?”.
I told my mom that I would like to use the computer and play Minecraft too. I was sad that my body wouldnâ€™t let me do what other kids did.
And do you know what my mom did? She went on the computer and found me lots of different tools I could use to help me.
First she found an AcuPoint. I just stick something to my forehead and it knows what Iâ€™m thinking - it follows my head movements to see where I am lookingâ€“ very cool.
Next she found a CameraMouse. This is like the AcuPoint, but I donâ€™t have to stick anything to my brain. Instead I just need to put a camera on my computer that can see me move my head or fingers and it acts like a mouse.
The last thing she found for me was called Cyberlink Interface. This one really can read my mind. If I put on a headband, it can read my mind. My brain and my body send signals to the headband and it can do the rest for me. I can play video games or watch videos. I think I like this one best; the name makes me think I might go into outer space one day and meet an alien.
