Brain interface.

We need to investigate the following further: Dr Paul Gnanayutham from the University of Portsmouth, picks up a patient’s “bio-potential” signals, such as brain waves and eye movements, through an Alice-band fitted with electronic probes.

Research needed for man machine interface optimization ALS

Research needed for man machine interface optimization ALS
Could someone please provide us with a simple walkthrough of ALS/Lou Gehrigs 
disease, from onset to fatality.
List which motor functions go first to last?
How does the decline affect mental capability?

This is a somwhat obsolete TODO as we have learned that the condition does not as such affect mental capabilities, the only interesting aspect would be in creating /researching appropriate input interfaces for the different phases, ending up with for instance a brain cap as the primary interface.

Hand interface.

It is our hope to utilize a standard VR glove or similar input device to input sign language which can then be transformed to images or sentences, thus increasing the useage potential of our applications.

A very interesting project is The Cemetech Bluetooth Dataglove (Clove 2) by Kerm Martian which can be found at http://www.cemetech.net/projects/item.php?id=16 - According to the site total cost of construction is roughly USD$60 This includes glove, bluetooth module, and charger.

Integrating an input layer between the glove and our applications would enable deaf to speak with the hearing for a nominal one time fee and the hearing and others to help for instance those without language to quickly establish a language based on signs - images and sound output.
