@Prashant Sharma is working on building 25 keypads for lab testing with a user group from UNESCO and Technology For The People .

They have a very detailed process and documentation procedure when it comes to projects for the disabled and are putting a team of volunteers together to help us with it.  With this, they say getting stakeholders from various NGO's and Government will be easier since the value proposition is well documented, as well as will give us detailed feedback to focus future development, and not chase every feature request we have been getting. 

The PCB designs are slightly updated, for making assembly easier with all components on one side, and button pads on the other ( as opposed to everything being on one side). I Will be updating the source files once the boards are assembled and tested. 

I am flying to Pasadena day-after to attend  the Hackaday Superconferance on 10th, 11th and 12th. Looking forward to meeting amazing people and hope we get somewhere in the Hackaday prize !

See you there!
