The Winkymote: An Eyelid-Powered Television Remote

WinkymoteFor quadriplegics, everyday tasks may become difficult due to mass paralysis. However, manipulating common technologies can help facilitate some of those tasks, allowing quadriplegics more independence. An example of this is the newly designed Winkymote. The device attaches to the user’s eyelids, allowing them to operate their television with eye movements. The Winkymote captures data from the user’s eyelid movements then syncs the information to an infrared television remote.  With the use of the Winkymote, users will be able to change channels as well as turn their televisions on and off.
