Nous

nous™ is a unique switch access method lets people control assistive software by blinking. nous™ is both hardware and software. *price to be confirmed*

  •  The hardware component is a soft headset that houses the sensors which measure your blinks. These sensors measure the electrical signals of eye movement, called "electrooculography" or EOG (this signal is independent of your eyebrow or forehead movements, and is only produced by the movement of your eyeballs). With nous™, the headset measures the EOG signals produced when a person blinks. 

nous™ might be a useful switch access method for you, if existing assistive technologies are too difficult to use. They may be difficult to use because you may not have the physical means of accessing them, or they may be tiring to use. Nous™ could be the perfect solution for you because it only requires you to have the ability to blink reliably.

The software part of nous™ needs to understand what a person’s “blink signal” looks like before they start using it as a switch access method - this ensures that they get the most accurate experience when using blinks to control software applications.

Processor: 1.33GHz Quad core or faster
Memory: 2GB RAM
Hard disk: 2MB+ HDD Space
Operating system: Windows 7, 8 or 10
Bluetooth (to use your blink detection headband)
Internet connectivity (at least to activate your copy of nous™)

Using nous™ to access Windows OS Software

Once the calibration is complete, nous™ can be used as a switch access method for Windows OS based computer applications, such as

Grid 3 by Smartbox
Clicker 7 by Crick Software
NuVoice by PRC
Communicator 5 by Tobii Dynavox
Customise nous™ to access other applications that can be used with switch interfaces.

nous™ side menu and menu tab

Once you’ve finished setting up nous™, and launched the software you wish to use, it will open and the nous™ side-menu. This is designed to hide away when you click on the tab, so you can use most of the computer screen to see the apps you wish to control with nous™.
