Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)

Eliminating the assistive technology gap against low-income PWD, by allowing anyone to build a wireless or USB controller, with 3Rs Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, without the need for 3D printers or circuit boards.

Irazu controls cursor by moving joystick with the mouth and controls the click with a blow switch.

For only 5 dollars in materials.

Do you want to see how it works?

The manual will show how to take advantage of a gamepad or any video game controller to create a fully functional irazu.

irazu is a project that seeks the premise:

"Anyone can build it, for anyone who needs it."

The materials needed for this utility model will be:
1-  gamepad or any video game control.
2- tin.
1 - soldering iron.
1 - wire.
2 - micro switches
4 - soda caps.
2 - balloons
2 -pens.
silicone glue
And for the supportt only need a pvc pipe.

It is fully functional, using different mouse emulators that currently exist on the market, and that we will do tutorials on youtube of the different configurations.

Hi Olman, I really like the work that you are doing. Very clever use of inexpensive / easily available parts. I love the balloon/switch idea!

Let's talk about accessibility.
Would you pay more than 700 dollars for a standard mouse?

So why, a person with a disability has to pay more than 700 dollars for one?

Why not open a real opportunity for the families of people who cannot acquire an assistive technology device to control their computer.

without investing either in 3d printers or in the construction of complex circuits.

In a few more days, I will upload the manual to send it to the contest,

Remember if you like this project, like it.

Until now, all the projects of this type, that I have found, need 3D printers, or the creation of circuit boards, limiting the number of potential beneficiaries to a few people with management of these resources.

With this project he intends to take a big step, which helps to resolve the gap created by the absent skills and motor limitations of people with disabilities, towards independent use of the computer.

An economically accessible device, so that family members or friends of the person with disabilities can easily build it at home.
