You can tell from the picture above I am REALLY happy to have this ‘ASL Head Array’ Most of you are probably wondering, WHAT THE HELL IS A HEAD ARRAY. Is it some sort of thing used by aliens to read your thoughts? Is it a mind control device? Is it some sort of evil thing?
If you guessed mind control you were close. This thing will once I get the correct interface box, which is a special box that goes between it and the chair to change HACL (Head Array Command Language) into PCCL (PowerChair Command Language) allow me to drive and control my entire wheelchair and even the television and possibly my computer using nothing but minute head movements. You probably are wondering, why Alin, your arms work fine. Well my arms don’t work this well all the time. Spasticity can be a pain in the butt and prevent me from driving my wheelchair in a safe manner or at all, it can prevent me from typing on the computer without having to make corrections for typos every third word, like on this post. In other times my arms may just be too over tired to function or the tone might be too low. I can expect this to only get worse being that my CP and Rett Syndrome combined create a ‘Progressive Cerebral Palsy’ because Rett causes regressions. Right now I am in the middle of one! So having the array is like having a failsafe system on my chair and for controlling the world. Let alone one nice thing will be no one can say “Where’d we put the remote” as I will be sitting in the remote! ha ha!
Anyway I have yet to get the head array unboxing video up along with a short demonstration of how it works. Well how it will work once I get the damn correct box.
