HandCubeKeys startup is focused on the development of a special, non-contact, programmable, wooden computer keyboard for people with physical, mental (polio, autism) and visual disabilities that have issues working with a traditional keyboard. The keyboard is designed as a wooden storeyed construction with 50 wooden cubes with alphabet letters, numbers, pictograms, modification and application keys (e-mail, browser) and corresponding pictures.
Each cube is programmable and transfers to a computer software not only characters but also images. Keys (cubes) perform their function even without the storey construction, since they playfully develop the creativity and imagination of children and can be used as a didactic aid. Users can operate the HandCubeKeys also with their hands, feet, palms, elbows, head, chin and fingers using the sensor. The keyboard can be adjusted in two positions: horizontally or at an angle.
The HandCubeKeys keyboard can be used to compensate for the social consequences of a severe disabilities, especially in the field of communication, due to impaired or lost physical, sensory or mental functions, as well as it may facilitate contact with the social environment and allow easier access to information. The keyboard can also be used for people with disabilities in the labor market, e.g. performing work activities by means of computer technology.
