With this hardware device, that looks somewhat like a modem (pictured), you will be able to use voice commands, facial expressions, virtual buttons, and tilt controls to "play games, do homework, be productive, and control your technology with ease."
The groundbreaking technological product is the brainchild of Alex Dunn, who says Enabled Play is a device that learns to work with you — not a device you have to learn to work with.” Dunn’s AI-enabled controller takes into account a person’s natural tendencies. If a gamer wants to set up a jump command every time they open their mouth, Enabled Play would identify that person’s individual resting mouth position and set that as the baseline.
In January, Enabled Play officially launched in six countries — its user base is now worldwide. For Dunn, one of his primary goals was to fill a gap in accessibility and pricing compared to other assistive gaming devices. Since its launch in January, Enabled Play has partnered with a number of organizations in the gaming and assistive tech sphere, including Special Effect, Makers Making Change and — more recently — Microsoft with its Designed for Xbox accessibility partners program.
As with so many inspirational stories of assistive technology that breaks down barriers for the disabled, Alex was motivated to help his younger brother who has a disability.
We applaud the work that Alex Dunn is doing with Enabled Play!
